1975 Dalva colheita

Post by AHB » 21:28 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Drunk at Quevedo's Quinta Santa Rosario with Oscar and Claudia Quevedo and Christian Gollnick. Bottled 2014. Darker in tone than the Quevedo 1974 colheita shown alongside. Deep honey brown with a green rim (which Claudia said indicated that white grapes had been used in the blend); 50% opaque. Surprisingly closed on the nose, showing almost nothing. Little on the palate on entry other than a touch of wood ash. Some air on the mid-palate releases a bit of acidity and some citrus flavours but this is very slow and reluctant to reveal anything. The aftertaste is pleasant enough and delivers a long finish full of sticky honey. 87/100. Drunk 28-Sep-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
