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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

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