2011 Dow LBV

Post by AHB » 22:33 Fri 03 Nov 2017

Purchased from a café on the cais in Vila Nova de Gaia and drunk while watching the crews board the boats for the Barco Rabello race.

Deep purple colour; pleasant nose. Generous levels of tannins and plenty of fruit made this the perfect accompaniment for a veal chop in garlic butter. 85/100. 24-Jun-17. Pop 'n' pour.
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
