1960 Ferreira

Post by AHB » 21:22 Fri 06 Jan 2017

Deep mahogany red colour, 80% opaque. Rather alcoholic on the nose with lots of leather and tobacco and huge amounts of old book dust. Balanced on the palate, but subdued and with less impact than either the Harvey 1962 or the Sandeman 1946 drunk alongside - a little woody and awkward by comparison. Sweet and modest on the finish. 86/100. Drunk 14-Dec-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
