For The Love of Port
Author: Roy Hersh
Issue: Issue 27
As a young cask sample back in May, this was primary and plumy with a memorable finish and last month while at Quinta do Panascal I was pleased to try this again. I opened a bottle last night and it showed little love straight away. A full on 12 hour decant helped and today it shows a magenta color and fully opaque. I made my through a few more sessions the following day too, to ensure that I'd fully appreciate the lineup and not miss any of the development. This shows spicy plum and primary pomegranate nuances with expressive floral fragrances and a dose of heat on the nose which was gone by day three. Black currant, tar and tobacco flavors evolved as did its viscous richness which put on significant weight. Plenty of length on the finish which also delivers some astringent tannins that need a few years to really integrate.
