1999 Ferreira Quinta da Leda

Post by AHB » 22:23 Sat 28 May 2016

Quinta da Leda from Sogrape. Dark red colour with no purple, opaque centre. Delicious on the nose, thick with fruit that nicely balances ripeness with sourness. Light entry bringing rapsberry fruit, slightly sour with the acidity showing strongly and still with plenty of tannins. Juniper and cranberry combine on the late palate. This is floral, elegant and refined. 87/100. 22-Apr-16.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
