2003 Berry Brothers (Quinta de la Rosa)
A wonderful dark red.

Herbaceous nose, warm blackberry-led palate.

Young yet, but this is excellent port.

Consumed 2/2/22.

Quinta de la Rosa. Opened at 21.00 the night before the tasting and decanted at 08.00.

Deep red in colour with a narrow rim. Fresh fruit salad on the nose. Slow to show on the palate but patience allows a good, sweet bramble fruit to develop supported by really good tannins giving a great grip. This is all followed by a long chalky bramble finish. Thoroughly enjoyable. 91/100. Drunk 02-Feb-22. Decanted 12 hours.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.
