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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
