1997 Gould Campbell vintage port

Post by AHB » 11:18 Wed 24 Dec 2008

Light colour and paling rim. Quite closed on the nose with a bit of heat showing through. Good body, very sweet and fruity, full of dark cherries and bitter chocolate tannins. A big aftertaste, which fills the mouth with fruit and the cheeks with dark chocolate. Very long and delicious. Will be a lovely port. 91/100. Tasted 27/11/08.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
