NV Marks and Spencer 10YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 21:49 Mon 23 Oct 2017

From Quinta & Vineyard Bottlers. Brick red colour, looking like a tawny reserve. Sweet rose perfume on the nose. Sweet in the mouth, a little hollow at first but develops nicely to show some fruit and some tannic structure on the late palate. Sweet, gentle candied fruit on the good length finish. Adequate without being exciting and there are other 10 year old tawnies which are better but around the same price. 84/100. 24-May-17.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
