1977 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 08:34 Sat 10 Dec 2011

Mature in colour, 20% opaque. Subdued nose, showing a little fruit and all spice. Watery texture, hollow entry, very light. Soft aftertaste, and a finish of jelly babies and aniseed. A disappointing bottle of this wonderful wine. 83/100. Drunk 1 Dec 2011.
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
