1900 Borges colheita

Post by AHB » 23:00 Sun 28 Mar 2010

Bottled 1947. Cloudy and a very dark chestnut brown, holding strongly into the rim. A subdued nose with some medicinal notes and some molasses, but strangely hollow. Thick entry into the mouth, sweet but with balancing acidity following in the mid-palate. Plenty of fruit and complexity. Good aftertaste which starts extremely well and lasts a good long time. A potentially great wine that is let down by the nose. 92/100. Drunk 1 July 2007.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
