The Notes

Tasting 1

Notes: Tasting of three vintage ports. Very grapey on the nose. In the mouth good fruit and strong acidity but very little tannins. Will be interesting to see how it develops.

* 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 weighted slightly by their category. Therefore, a Ruby Port might receive a C rating for Certainly good which it might not were it to be a Vintage Port. 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.
