1990 Malvedos vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:53 Wed 01 Feb 2012

A half bottle, courtesy of Axel's cellar.

Plum red in colour, firm rim; 70% opaque. Stewed blackcurrant on the nose, Soft fruit on entry, rather sharp and acidic but with plenty of fruit. Lovely red licorice aftertaste and a warm cinammon finish.

Medium bodied and delicate in tone with a delicious finish of coffee and dark chocolate. 88/100. Drunk 1 Feb after 2 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
