Wine Advocate Weighed In On Port Last Night!!!
For a few weeks now Zachys has been hyping the most recent vintage to receive the official declaration: 2011
James Suckling (www.jamessuckling.com) has been singing the praises of this soon-to-be-released vintage and now Neil Martin of The Wine Advocate has checked in:
"A Declaration, A Promise: 2011 Vintage Port - …stylistically the 2011s are a "classic," "masculine," relatively structured set of Ports that are built for the long term. But for reasons I will outline, whereas in the past it was necessary to wait not years but decades for Port to reach a plateau of maturity, many 2011s will be enjoyable in their youth. And perhaps it is here that Port might be making inroads into the younger generation, which is crucial for long-term sustainability and provides a foundation for future connoisseurs..." WA 5/28/13.
