2017 Quinta de la Rosa

Post by JacobH » 22:35 Sun 06 Dec 2020

Although branded as a Waitrose bottling, this was apparently a classic QdlR blend.

Deep purple. Fading a bit. Huge unexpected nose of elderflower. Again, very elegant to drink. Low acidity and tannin. Good fruit. Extremely drinkable.

Tasted at: Quinta de la Rosa Virtual Tasting

Date: 24th November 2020

Rated*: P+

* 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.
