2000 Ramos Pinto

Post by AHB » 22:51 Sun 30 Apr 2017

Brick red in colour with a wide rim. Fesh nose of young fruit, nice and vibrant. Balanced on entry with the young fruit softened by a bit of age. Soft tannins still show and are more pronounced when air is drawn through the mouth. Restrained fruit and lots of pepper make up the aftertaste and leads to a long licorice and jelly-bean finish. This is a nicely structured port for the medium term. 88/100. Drunk 04-Apr-17.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
