1963 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:33 Sun 14 Jun 2009

Opened as part of the Wokingham offline on 11 June 2009.

Ullaged to very low shoulder. Light red, clear in the centre. A warm nose with a bit of alcohol over violets and milk chocolate. Silky and thick in the mouth; warm and fruity with some lovely orange and kumquat flavours with a delicious sweet strawberry concentrate. A slight burn on the aftertaste but then the finish is full of lovely flavours and a huge, long length. Absolutely delicious. 93/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
