1978 Dow Bomfim

Post by Axel P » 09:21 Tue 20 Oct 2009

Out of a 12 OWC I just bought from an auction.

Cherry-red color, very vital and well concentrated. Quite complex in the nose with slight raspberry, floral. Mouthfulling palate, soft, but very decent. All ingredients perfectly integrated. Is getting better after about 3 hrs in the decanter. Slight minty note. Good aftertaste with some background fruit. Not as good as the Ferreira of 78.

A very pleasant port to drink now and within the next 10 years (should be fairly cheap to acquire). 16+
