NV Quinta do Sagrado Fine Ruby

Post by AHB » 23:15 Wed 03 Jan 2018

From Nova Quinta do Sagrado but bottled under the Quinta do Sagrado label. Deep red with a brick rim. Fresh on the nose with a hint of hot elastic. Nice impact, soft baked fruit that is easy to drink but with a little soft tannin on the palate. The hot elastic bands show up again on the finish, which is otherwise full of gentle and lingering cherry. This would be a good choice for a flavoursome ruby and would cellar for 2-5 years. 86/100. 06-Nov-17.
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
