2003 Vinha da Ponte

Post by AHB » 22:35 Sun 27 Dec 2015

From Quinta do Crasto. Magnum. Deep red, youthful and opaque. Restrained on the nose, showing a little hot fruit. Smooth in the mouth, full of dark cherries with a dry charcoal undertone. A big palate presence with a great floral structure. A lovely elegance and great persistence to the finish. 90/100. Drunk 24-Nov-15. Decanted 7 hours.

Drunk at Otto's on 24 November 2015.
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
