Re: 1977 Berry Bros & Rudd (Quarles Harris)

Shipped by Quarles Harris. Deep red, 90% opaque. Lovely nose, big and full with masses of redcurrant. Modest entry, sweet rose hips and good balance. Mid-palate a little astringent, restrained and youthful. Lovely gentle aftertaste with lots of raspberry jelly. A long jelly finish. Lovely - but very young. 89/100.
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
