2014 tasting note year

Quinta do Bomfim 2004 Vintage Port: A gorgeous glass...punch and personality makes it one of the most thrilling of the great Single Quinta Vintage Ports...renowned for its grip and dry finish, this delicious Vintage Port is crammed with seductive plummy, smokey black-pepper spice.

2006 tasting note year

One of my favorites from the Symington's stable of 2004 VPs. This dark purplish colored SQVP delivers a sexy nose and is laden with dense, ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit. The palate attack is surprisingly sweet for a Bomfim and it has more of a viscous, black fruit profile which is smooth and ultra-ripe. The tannins are prominent and showing more drying astringency than when I tried it nearly four months ago. Today it shows as a chewy, concentrated beast with a superlative layered finish. This youngster shows a solid core within which will drink best in a couple of decades or three.

Score: 94/100
