Wine Wednesdays: Quinta De La Rosa Port 2012

quintadelarosa

 

For Wine Wednesdays this week we have Quinta De La Rosa Vintage Porto 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. The 2012s are often underrated after the 2011s but not this one!
