1970 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:51 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Lovely glowing red in colour with a pink rim. Plasticine tone on the nose under a pleasant fruity nose. Sweet in the mouth, plenty of fruit but a little subdued. Tannins are subdued and well supported by good developing fruit. The aftertaste is pleasant and of reasonable length, but is not big. Surprisingly, this is not as good as the Sao Luiz 1970 shown alongside. 89/100. Drunk 27 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
