The Notes

Tasting 1

Notes: Blind sample. Was one of the best two samples on the night. Extremely drinkable it was probably the most floral of the samples (although there was also a heavy grapyness). The tannins were quite light; it does make me wonder how long this vintage will last. Second after Noval.

Tasted at: TPF offline 20v2009.

No rating.


Tasting 2

Notes: Very floral on the nose. Soft and elegant in mouth. Extremely drinkable. Excellent.

Tasted at: Big Fortified Tasting, London

Rated*: C

A Note on Ratings

My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: No; Possibly; or 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.
