1955 Martinez vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:46 Tue 17 Jul 2012

Dolomore bottled. Burnished brick-red, crystal clear in the glass. On the nose, a touch of dusty raspberry. Sweet and focused entry, really attractive concentrated fruit, a big palate. Huge fruit aftertaste and finish. A tremendous port. 89/100. 13-Jun-12. Decanted 1 hour.
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

Mz55: dark red, 50% opaque. Nose had red cherry, heat, and some tannin. But the mouth full of big dark fruit.
