1967 Taylor Vargellas

Post by AHB » 20:32 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Drunk at the Factory House on the occasion of The Port Forum's 10th Anniversary dinner. Sourced from the cellar of the Factory House.

A little soft, bruised fruit shows on the nose. Coffee dominates the entry, with a coffee caramel mid-palate. Coffee seems to be the theme of this bottle with a rich, coffee aftertaste that is relatively short. This port is drying out and shows little real fruit but is thoroughly inoffensive. 82/100. 21-Jun-17. Decanted 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
