NV Berry Brothers Vintage Character

Taylor.

A bottle from Tom's cellar, believed bottled around 30 years ago.

Decanted cleanly off lots of sediment, much more than I expected from a filtered wine. The colour is still quite dark red but starting to brown. For me this has quite a typical Taylor's nose. It has nice thick tears on the glass. Mouthfeel is light but smooth and still some attractive fruit showing. A slightly burnt taste emerges quite quickly and then the kind of warm glow that one would always expect from a Taylor's port. Although obviously past it's best this is a very pleasant drink.

Score: 4-3
