1985 Churchill vintage port

Post by AHB » 21:59 Mon 14 Nov 2011

Served as an aperitif to the Matrix Tasting on 11 October 2011.

Mature red in colour; warm and very attractive nose. Sweet and mature fruit on the palate, very tasty and with a delightful spicy clove component. An enjoyable aftertaste makes this a fine port for current drinking. 88/100.
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
