2011 Berry Brothers

Post by AHB » 22:01 Thu 04 Jan 2018

From the 2017 Berry Brothers Port Walk.

Charles Symington confirmed that the 2011 Berry Brothers blend was not the same blend as any of the ports marketed under one of the Symington brands.

From magnum. Deep purple colour, opaque centre. A delicious yet floral nose. On the palate this has a smooth texture with velvety fruit and very rounded, ripe tannins; the fruit is generous. The aftertaste is fruit-forward in style and precedes a big finish. Typically for this vintage the fruit is rich and lush. This is a great port. 93/100. 23-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
