2010 Quinta do Sagrado LBV

Post by AHB » 23:15 Wed 03 Jan 2018

From Nova Quinta do Sagrado but bottled under the Quinta do Sagrado label. Bottled in 2015. 2,500-3,000 litres made. Modest rose red colour with a narrow rim, perhaps a little cloudy. Showing little on the nose, some hints of fruit and perhaps of rosemary. Light, dry fruit on the palate but the tannins are refined and nicely ripe. The aftertaste is gentle, fruity and leads to the best feature of this port, the finish. The finish is peppery and lively and fully flavoured. I felt that this port was behind the ruby in terms of quality and enjoyment. 84/100. 06-Nov-17.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
