Churchill's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2011
Black cherry colour with a garnet rim. Lovely fruit purity and intensity on the nose, with floral and resinous notes. Quite solid and juicy on the palate, showing excellent backbone and tannic structure combined with a well defined natural acidity in a long and persistant finish.
Wine SpectatorOffers intense aromas and flavors of violet, cherry and dark plum, showing an almost exotic velvety nature, with loads of cream and spice accents. Delivers notes of chocolate and vanilla extract on the explosive finish. Very alluring. Best from 2030 through 2060. 800 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateThe Churchill's Vintage Port has a comparatively light, aniseed-tinged bouquet with orange blossom that wafts seductively from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannins and very well-judged acidity that lends this young Churchill's great precision. This is a very harmonious Vintage Port with a lovely touch of salted licorice towards the finish. Beautiful. 3,000 cases declared. Tasted May 2013.
