1996 Barros colheita

Post by AHB » 20:25 Tue 03 Jan 2017

£5 for a 50ml pour at the Lansdowne Club. Softer than the 1978 tasted alongside with more nutty flavours sitting in the lime and grapefruit acidity. Cloying on the finish with the sweetness and acidity clashing rather than complimenting. Despite this, still better value for money than the £11 glass of the 1978 colheita. 85/100. Drunk 07-Nov-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
