Re: 1934 Dalva Colheita

Bottled 1973. 30% opacity, amber tobacco. Amazing nose, fresh, oranges. Smooth, syrupy, sweet, but dryness late on palate. Oranges. Acidity lacking a little so a touch flabby. Very nice nonetheless.

I have nothing to hand that is satisfactory. Would it be possible to adopt?
I was debating whether to bring two bottles. Why don’t I do so and one can be JDAW’s adoptee.
Okey Dokey.
