Quinta de la Rosa Vintage Port 2012
Very concentrated and focused aromas, where they divide between fresh, cherry fruit and well ripened plums and wild berries. On one side the port is very generous whilst allowing bitter chocolate and alcoholic flavours to come through. On the palate it is exuberant and seductive, with enormous intensity and complexity but without any extremes resulting in a very balanced and elegant wine. The fruit, chocolate and liquor flavours are well integrated with the tannins which are obvious but yet soft.
This 2012 vintage is in an ideal phase for immediate consumption for those who like their vintage ports young and vibrant but it will develop and mature well in the bottle for the next few decades. Jorge adores this vintage port! The 2012s are often underrated after the 2011s but not this one!
Wine SpectatorOffers a spicy aroma, with luscious, well-knit flavors of dark plum and wild cherry. Pepper and milk chocolate notes show on the lush, spicy finish, featuring hints of dried mint. Drink now through 2040. 800 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThe wine is rich and spicy with layers of dried raisin and prune flavors along with a light touch of acidity. Its ripe fruit is tempered by the bite of spirit that gives the wine a lift as well as adding extra richness. On the dry side of Ports, it is made to be drunk now.
