The Notes

Tasting 1

Notes: Some fruit present on the nose but the aroma is subtle. In the mouth the driest and most tannic of the 2007s on show. Very hard to access for that reason: needs much time to open-out.

Tasted at: Big Fortified Tasting, London

Rated*: P

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.
