1968 Andresen colheita port

Post by AHB » 23:43 Sat 16 Jan 2010

Bottled 2007. Light red colour, clear and glowing. Colheita nose. Sweet in the mouth, very full and flavoursome; richa and tasty. Full of dried citrus fruit. Slightly subdued immediate aftertaste, long in length. A really impressive wine. 92/100. 17 Dec 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

This was an unexpectedly good Port.I'd bought it from Laithwaites as a snap purchase as it sounded a good idea then immediately regretted it until we drank it. Lots of citrus but a really multi-layered Port and may even have got Julian to appreciate an Andreson.
Port is basically a red drink

Following KillerB’s mis-spelt optimism I shall quote precisely from my handwritten Notes. ‟Orange”. ‟Acidic. Marzipan. Way too old. Doesn’t do it for me. Colheita.”
