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 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
