1938 Kopke Colheita

Post by AHB » 00:12 Sun 30 Nov 2008

Bottled 2002. Deep chestnut colour with a yellow / green rim. Lots of spirit with some honey and walnuts on the nose. Brown sugar in the mouth with the acidity dominating the mid-palate for a time before allowing the sugar flavours to come back through. The brown sugar theme carries through to the aftertaste with an added bitter component reminding me of quinine that was rather pleasant. Not a great wine but certainly enjoyable. 91/100. Tasted 30/6/07.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
