This is a lovely Port, but I still have quite a bit left from the previous offering. If you haven’t tried it, do so.
buying blind - lets hope the reputation holds out…
I bought this the last time it was up. Port was pretty good, chocolate was delicious.
In for one. Looking forward to this!
I got some of this the last time. Still have two bottles (and a ton of other port) so don’t really need more. Haven’t tried the chocolate yet. Here are my CT notes on this port:
Color: Nice dark, garnet color
Nose: Nothing overly distinguishable on the nose. Mostly get the brandy, maybe some ripe blackberries and raisins. It smells like port!
Taste: Nice sweetness on the front, not a ton a fruit, but good hints of dark dark cherries, raisins and some oak. The sweetness is quickly overtaken by the heat and spice and then ends with a nice, long finish that lingers and lingers.
Overall: A nice vintage port, but seems to be lacking a little bit of the balance I was hoping for. Hopefully it smooths out a bit with some more time in the bottle, but even as it sits now, its a great QPR
tasting notes from those who have had this? Please? I have only had Fonseca port at a restaurant and LOVE it…
Anyone have any idea of the drinking window? Not a huge port drinker and still have the KR I bought in 2011.
Is that a double negative so they were actually light cherries? lol…
BTW, sorry about losing Pineda. That has us Yankee fans a tad worried
I’ve got good until at least 2021 based on previously winery participation.
And that is the trigger pulled on my first wine.woot. Fingers crossed!
Man, three offers in a single Woot-Off? My poor wallet.
That’s how they reel you in and get you addicted, not unlike a corner drug dealer. Except you don’t have to pay for expensive rehab, which is a good thing because you won’t be able to afford it
Congrats on breaking your grape.
I bought this in December and gave bottles to Port-loving friends for Christmas and they all RAVED about it. Their birthdays are coming up soon, so I’m in for another one. Yay!
Only 3? I am 5 so far, and that doesn’t include the one I missed and would have gotten because I was sleeping.
I’m relatively new to port. In for one.
How long will this last once opened? How should it be stored once open?
Wow…yesterday Pedroncelli PS, today their delicious Port. You guys would really make my day if you threw up a case of Pedroncelli SB!!!
Port vs Forte?
Why is Pedroncelli a Port while KR’s is Forte?
