1997 Smith Woodhouse vintage port

Post by AHB » 11:24 Wed 24 Dec 2008

Clear centre, colour just starting to fade on the rim. Surprisingly young smelling nose, full of blueberries - not what was expected from the appearance. Dry in the mouth, structured and very fruity with lovely flavours accompanied by tannins which complement the fruit wonderfully. An elegant aftertaste, not big but very long and full of dark chocolate. A very good wine. 90/100. Tasted 27/11/08.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
