1927 Ferreira Vintage Port:
The tasting was hosted by Ferreira with winemaker Jose Maria Soares Franco giving the 3 hour presentation on Barca Velha and of course, the 3 centuries of Ferreira Port.
I must say that the moment I entered the room the aroma that filled the air was tantalizing. There wasn't a person in the room who didn't stick their noses into the two old Ports the moment they sat down...there was just no way you could resist.
The anticipation filled the room.
This was the baby that was throwing all the wonderful fragrance...WOW!
Medium to dark brown in color...had a nose to die for.
Dominated by candied caramel, brandy, and honey. The palate did not disappoint...it was a party!
The candied caramel-brandy-honey dance were joined by notes of tropical fruit, nuts, brown sugar, and spice...and this dance just went on and on...the finish was a marathon of caramel and brandy.
