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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
