2012 Quinta de la Rosa

Post by AHB » 22:14 Thu 04 Jan 2018

From the 2017 Berry Brothers Port Walk.

Deep purple colour, opaque centre. Blue cheese on the nose over an odd bruised black cherry. The palate is fragrant with ripe black cherries around a bitter black chocolate tanning core. There are blueberry tones to the late palate. Harsh and slightly lacking on the aftertaste that is dry and full of green tannins but the finish is fine and complex. 86/100. 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
