2000 Quinta do Pego

Post by RonnieRoots » 08:43 Mon 23 Apr 2018

Bought in 2002 at the Calem lodge (who made and bottled this at the time).

Attractive dark cherry and licorice nose. Very sweet (candied) red and black cherries on the palette, with quite a fiery finish. Lacks a bit of stuffing and not terribly complex but an enjoyable drink for sure and surprisingly youthful at 18 years old. Will hold, but I don't see this growing in complexity. 86/100
