2008 Quinta das Tecedeiras Colheita (bottled 2016)

Post by AHB » 23:21 Wed 03 Jan 2018

Bottled 2016. Red-brown mahogany in colour, 60% opaque. Unusual nose, distinctly smelling of marmite! Sweet entry, bland and one-dimensional with hints of light honey. The mid-palate is a little better but starts to show a hot / burnt elastic tone. Not one to seek out if this is a typical bottle. 76/100. 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
