NV Pocas Junior 40YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 12:55 Mon 17 Oct 2016

A tasting note mostly for Charles. I needed a half bottle of port to last me the weekend before I travelled to the port deserts that are Poland and the Czech Republic.

Deep orange colour, 30% opaque. Gentle nose of basil and dry pine forests, very Mediterranean. Gentle and elegant flavours on entry, but somehow manages to grow thicker in the mid-palate. Soft and floral with a very gentle and elegant flavour profile which produces an amazing aftertaste that runs through a dozen different variances of toffee apple and red cinnamon. Fabulous length finish. This is a lovely, elegant 40 year old tawny with a powerful finish. 89/100. Drunk 07-Oct-16. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
