Reviews of purchase Quinta do Infantado, Douro DOC, 2013
Port ruby color with brown tints.
Great generous flavor of port wine is characterized by finesse and elegance. Fresh fruit tones complemented by rounded, mature tannins, giving a velvety texture. Pleasant notes of roasted nuts are in a long aftertaste.
The tones of ripe berries and fruits, intertwined with notes of mint, spices, raisins and toasted almonds, add up to a balanced, rather intense aroma of Porto.
Port wine is best combined with aromatic hard cheese, goat cheese, chocolate desserts, coffee and nuts.
Port Porto LBV (Late Bottle Vintage), 2009 has rather concentrated, subtly sweet flavor and a deep aroma, as well as superb storage capacity of between 15 to 50 years!

To maximize the full bouquet of disclosure recommended preliminary decanting for 2 hours.
