2004 Dow Bomfim

Post by AHB » 22:23 Sun 29 May 2016

Deep red with a wide rim and an opaque centre. Closed on the nose with some faint flower perfume and bruised plums. Smooth entry, initially hollow but air brings strong tannins and caramelised rhubarb. The tannins are strong on the late palate. Chewy blackcurrant fruit governs the aftertaste and leads to a long red licorice finish. This is an attractive port that will reward another 10 years in the cellar. 87 04-May-16

2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
