1963 Hooper colheita

1963 Hooper Vintage Port bottled in 1973
An interesting port specimen.

A lovely murky color of diarrhea mixed with water after too much light brown curry.

very delicate nose of cinnamon sugared raisins. A slight spirity body of birch wood and southern sweet tea.

Quite enjoyable and a very solid but light port despite the offputting color.

I'm starting to find that hooper's can be very decent house.

88.
