NV Quevedo Crusted Bottled 2016

Post by AHB » 21:44 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Bottled in 2016, made from a blend of 2013, 2011 and a bit of 2012. Deep red in colour with a very narrow dark purple rim. Very young nose with masive levels of fruit but also some tanky or very young spirit. Smooth in texture on the palate with perfumed fruit and vigorous toasted tannins. Lively and chewy aftertaste and a long blackcurrant finish. Served blind this was guessed to be Quevedo's 2013 vintage port. This crusted port is due to be released in 2019. 86/100. 28-Sep-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
