1983 Quarles Harris

Post by bman » 20:18 Mon 24 Mar 2008

These TNs are from 36 hours after opening, of which the first 12 were spent in an open decanter after which it was stoppered.

Medium full bodied, medium sweet. Lots of alcohol on the nose even after so much air but not overly alcoholic in the mouth.

Just the beginning of the pale rim at the edge of the glass that usually signifies a mature port.

I tasted black cherry, big juicy sultana raisins, cinnamon, cigar box, and somethin like mango on the finish ( :confused:)

Long finish.

Much better than expected.

I score this 92 points.
