1912 Real Vinicola Colheita

Post by AHB » 14:58 Mon 16 Jul 2012

RO12: cloudy orange, 20% opaque. Very tawny nose. Taste not good: sharp heat, very hot, then fades fast. Not my favourite 1912. JDAW.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

A colheita, but no bottling date given. Cloudy, light brown with a barley coloured rim. Gentle colheita nose, quite restrained, not much showing. Sweet impact on the palate, then powerful burning acidity. Little shows on the palate, just a bit of subdued honey and lemon. Hot - unpleasantly hot - and fairly short finish. Not great, especially not in a 1912 horizontal! 84/100. 14-Jun-12. Pop 'n' pour.
