2011 Churchill's Vintage Port
Offers 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.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Churchillís 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 Churchillís 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.
This is very floral and fruity with dark cherries and wild berries. Full body, lightly sweet with lots of fruit and a firm tannic backbone. Serious grip or finish to this young Port. This seems to be a remake of the outstanding 1994. 6,000 cases produced of this foot-trodden wine. Try in 2020.
