1977 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:52 Mon 14 Nov 2011

Warm red appearance, holding into the rim; 70% opaque. Hot on the nose, but with lovely rose-flower perfume. Sweet entry, with soft, sweet, jellied red fruit that shows itself before soft tannins and lots of nutmeg and heat make an appearance. Perfect levels of acidity. Dry aftertaste, initially dominated by tannins and heat. The aftertaste is long and lingering. 88/100. Drunk 13 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
