2016 Quinta de la Rosa

Post by AHB » 10:57 Tue 06 Nov 2018

Purple and opaque. An amazing nose full of fruit, one of the most fragrant ports from this vintage. The fruit is ripe and lush on the palate and comes with a good grip. This is a lovely fruit-dominated port with plenty of grip which can be drunk early or aged for up to 20-30 years. La Rosa have clearly got into their stride for making good vintage port. 89-91/100. 26-Sep-18.
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
