1997 Gould Campbell vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:09 Sun 30 Nov 2008

Deeper red than the Quarles Harris '97 that preceeded this wine in the tasting. Soft and restrained nose, less assertive than the QH, of blackberries and blackberry juice. Sweet entry with an immediate presence of ripe blackberries. Tannins grab the mouth and cheeks but there is a love;y midpalate complexity from the different layers of fruit. Aftertaste is faint at first but suddenly comes distinctly back into focus. 90/100. Tasted 2/11/06 after 1 hour in the decanter.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
