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.

2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
