NV Vasconcellos 40 yo tawny port

Post by AHB » 21:38 Sun 16 Oct 2011

Pale brown colour, slightly greening on the rim. Lovely colheita nose, with toffee apple everywhere. Sweet and supple entry, with lovely muscvado sugar, dates and walnuts - and absolutely no tannins. Big orange zest aftertaste and then a huge tingling (and delicious) finish. This is a very tasty barrel aged port. Drunk 13 October 2011. 89/100. Served blind, this was guessed to be the Noval 40 yo tawny.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
