2003 Quinta Santa Eufemia colheita

Post by AHB » 13:13 Sat 24 Jun 2017

Tasted at the Lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia.

Brick red, wide rim. Unpleasant rubber bands nose, not attractive. Nice texture on the palate, plenty of fruit backed by a big dose of acidity. Lovely slightly caramelised mid-palate but still with lots of the cherry fruit showing. Caramelised aftertaste and long finish. Nice showing. 88/100. Drunk 24 Jun 2017.
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
