1977 Smith Woodhouse vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:55 Sat 27 Nov 2010

Deep red, still opaque. Warm nose of cloves and pine cones, very sweet and intense. Full bodied, full-flavoured and with a dry cedar wood core from the distinct tannins which are still in the wine. An astonishing aftertaste, huge in size and never-ending in length. An enormous port with decades of life ahead of it. 93/100. Drunk 24 November 2010.
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
