1937 Kopke Colheita (bottled 2017)

Post by AHB » 20:26 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Drunk at the Factory House on the occasion of The Port Forum's 10th Anniversary dinner. Bottled in 2017, shortly before the dinner.

A lovely smell of pistachio paste and walnuts, with hints of dates and figs. Delightfully thick in texture on the palate with good acidity and ghostly tannins that combine to give a delicious coffee and quince impression. Coffe dominates the aftertaste and slowly changes into a finish full of bitter-sweet candied citrus peel. Simply delicious.

A second bottle served to the other side of the table was very different, being richer, sweet and more full (and slightly preferred). 95/100. 21-Jun-17. 3½ hours.
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
