1986 Taylor Quinta de Terra Feita

Post by DRT » 22:35 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:

Notes left at the table.

From memory- not dissimilar to the Warre 83 this evening, the finish was just a touch less complete.

Dark red with oranges on the nose. I thought Croft? A nice weight, lots of fruit and a lovely warming finish. Delicious stuff.

The guesses:
  • DJP: Warre 1983 (0 points)
  • RLC: brought this bottle (0 points)
  • WS1: Taylor 1985 (1 point)
  • CSD: Croft 1987 (0 points)
  • AHB: Warre 1985 (0 points)
  • DRT: Croft 1985 (0 points)
  • MKD: Warre 1985 (0 points)
Group score: 1/12

Very solid wine, and likely my #2 of the night (the 1980 Taylor would be quite close). This was another very enjoyable and mature tasting port, lacking depth/complexity but still giving great pleasure. 88pts
