1970 Dalva vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:48 Sat 16 Jan 2010

Mid-red in colour, giving the impression of a mature port. Sweet and spicy on the nose, but with a streak of lime acidity. Sweetness holds through the palate, with a good balance between fruit and ripe acidity and a decent aftertaste. 82/100. Drunk 17 Dec 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

Brick red fading to brown. Nose of smoke. Taste: mature nice port. Weight middling to middling+. Good drinking port.
