The Notes

Tasting 1

Notes: Tasting of three vintage ports. The oldest available. Red colour fading quite dramatically at the rim. Overwhelming scent of cherry sweets. Tasted a little backed, perhaps. Slightly less fresh fruit than I might have hoped for a 2000: it’s not quite clear how long it will last.

Tasted at: Vinologia

Date: 28th August 2017

Rated*: P

* 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.
