Taylor’s Quinta de Terra Feita Vintage Port, 1999

A little wet earth aroma and some Ribena!  Some alcohol comes off immediately with some herbal – rosemary and mint – emerging too.  The palate is a bit meaty, quite sweet, but with lots of earthy elements and a gutsy, spicy, leather flavour.  It is rich, with gutsy tannin, but is very nice with a savoury finish.  86pts (June 2011)
