NV Pocas Junior 20YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 22:05 Mon 23 Oct 2017

Dark orange colour, 30% opaque. A nose which is somewhat unpleasant being full of VA and resin. Much nicer on the palate bringing bruised oranges and a pleasant late palate, better when air is drawn over the palate. Despite the lovely aftertaste and spicy juniper finish, this is overly sweet and lacking a little in balance to be a great example of a 20 year old tawny. 88/100. 24-May-17.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994
