1931 Taylor

Post by AHB » 09:15 Mon 02 Jan 2017

A bottle from Army & Navy, hand labelled at Taylor Pinhao 1931. Deep honey-orange colour, 40% opaque and slightly cloudy. A slight toffee / butterscotch nose under an overt mandarin. The mandarin leads on the palate, which is rather hot on the mid-palate, where this port is dry and the tannins green. But the palate resolves itself nicely and leads to a great aftertaste. The green tannins lead on the aftertaste and delivers a wonderful finish - green and slightly minty with a great barley sugar core. 95/100. Drunk 25-Sep-16. Decanted ½ hour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
