1945 Dow

Post by AHB » 09:25 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Brick red with a distinct brown tone; 80% opaque. A little volatility on the nose at first, sweet and slightly almond-ey. On the palate this is mature but powerful with generous levels of spiced and lively fruit - lots of raisins and mace. A lovely, lovely port. 94/100. Drunk 26-Sep-16. Decanted 5 hours.
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
