Ramos Pinto LBV 2011 + Some Wine Gadgets


Ramos Pinto LBV Port 2011, Douro, Portugal (~£19 widely available)
LBV is supposed to be ready to drink on release, but this is a bit of a pup, and seems to be built to survive another decade or more. Dark, young and juicy, packed with blackberry, blackcurrant and damson flavours, with a herby, dusty warmth alongside the plump dark flesh, an almost honeyed sweetness and a backbone of fresh acidity and firm but never aggressive tannin. Very good wine. S(+)
