1980 Taylor

Post by DRT » 22:34 Sat 13 Mar 2010

Served blind at this off-line at the Crusting Pipe, London, on 9th March 2010.

The ports: Wines marked "*" were purchase on the night at TCP due to a world record consumption of 1 bottle each in less than 2 hours, which included dinner :roll:

Far too intoxicated by this stage. Sorry.

Quite a nice surprise! I have had really poor experiences with 80s Taylor VP, but this was quite a lovely little wine. Black cherries and brown sugar on the nose, with maybe just a bit of cinnamon. Actually likely the best/most complete nose of the night. Pleasant in the mouth, with smooth transitions from start to finish. Kind of a theme of this evening, I found this port lacked a little umph, but was quite sufficient for casual consumption. 87-88
