2016 Quinta do Vale Dona Maria

Post by AHB » 10:59 Tue 06 Nov 2018

Deep purple, expressive nose of fresh blueberry. Lovely textured entry, smooth and velvety and a great grip that settles quickly before the fruit comes back quickly. Fruity and perfumed. 88-90/100. Drunk 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
