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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
