1948 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:49 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Elegant red in colour, mature but not elderly. Lavender on the nose, smelling pleasantly fresh. Very sweet in the mouth with lovely fruit, elegance and a nice complexity. The aftertaste is slow to develop and is extremely short. Perfectly fine, but not a great port. 87/100. Drunk 26 June 2009.
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
