That should work.  Please:

- show your auth-sources variable.  It should be something like this:

((:source "~/authinfo.gpg" :host t :protocol t))

- set auth-source-debug to t and look in *Messages*.  Is it accessing
  the .gpg file and opening it?  What values does it print for the
  username and password?

- try with port "imaps" and without a port
