2011 Ferreira Vintage Port

"Lots of blueish purple. Very sweet and rich. Really plays the ripeness and sweetness card! Massive impact in the mouth and then tightens up to be a little dry and minerally on the finish. An exciting wine in a very distinctive style. Very dry finish at present. Drink from 2025 to 2050. - JR" (05/13) - 17.5 out of 20 Points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages. Wine: "This wine is the deepest crimson, almost opaque in colour. It displays great intensity, complexity and harmony on the nose. A prevalence of floral notes, especially rock-rose and heather as well as warm cedar hints from its time in oak. Spices such as pepper, with an undertone of curry, as well as some mineral notes are also in evidence. On the palate it has a lively attack, with balanced acidity, and robust and distinct tannins. Red fruits and spices, especially pepper, come to the fore during tasting." - Importer [+]
