1955 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 18:05 Sat 29 May 2010

Mature, mid-red colour, going rose on the rim. Very off nose, somewhat antiseptic with perhaps some bitter sloes. Quite sweet in the mouth, albeit slightly hollow but a mid-palate belance of damsons and violet drops. Dry, blueberry jelly finish with a dry and tannic length of a good duration. 90/100. Drunk 26 May 2010 after 8 hours decanting.
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
