1950 Taylors Special Quinta Vintage Port

Post by DRT » 23:30 Fri 22 Jun 2007

Bottled by Corney & Barrow â€‟ decanted 24 hours

Darker than I expected for an “unknown† wine of 56 years old. Not as dark as some of the other’s in the line-up but seemed to gain colour as the night went on. Smooth and thick mouth-feel. Very sweet raspberry cream and bitter chocolate. Slightly syrupy, like an old tawny. I have to say I was astonished by how well this wine stood up in this company. Although not as good as the Sandeman or Graham’s, both 13 years it’s junior, I found it’s appearance and freshness remarkable for a wine that seems to have no recorded history. I have 1 bottle left ad I may put a note on it to be opened in 2050!

Price seems quite high though.
