Nose quite dumb. Exuberant red fruit on front palate. Waves of fresh blackcurrant towards the end, and on the warming finish. Attractive port, but very young.

Consumed 1900-2130 24/11/20

Deep purple fading. Good nose but floral. Some marzipan. Enjoyable. In the mouth, quite elegant. Low acidity and tannin. Blackcurrants. Very drinkable now.

Tasted at: Quinta de la Rosa Virtual Tasting

* A Note on Ratings

My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: N—No; P—Possibly; or C—Certainly. Ports generally are rated against others of their category. Therefore, a Ruby Port which I rate as C for Certainly good, might not be as good as a Vintage Port which receives the same rating. I sometimes modify my rating with a plus or minus indicating that the Port is better or worse than might be expected for this category.
