1977 Smith Woodhouse

Post by DRT » 02:05 Fri 22 Jun 2007

A bottle purchased recently from Tom Archer. The cork broke in half and then crumbled. A nice dark colour but the nose and initial taste were very hot and spicy.

+21 Hours
No note taken so this part is from memory. Now showing some nice fruits and the heat had integrated well. A nice port but not the blockbuster I was expecting after reading others recent experiences.

+ 48 Hours
Now seems even darker than before. The mouthfeel is lighter and now slightly watery. What surprises me is that after 48 hours this wine has developed a tanic dryness that I did not detect previously. Is this a sign that it is still on an upward curve?

Score: 6-6
