1984 Smith Woodhouse LBV (unfiltered)

Post by AHB » 17:04 Wed 18 Jul 2012

Bottled 1988, traditional LBV. Mature red, with a pink rim. Rich redcurrants on the nose, attractive. Sweet fruit, nice balance with a very faint tannin giving a pleasant dustiness before a fragrant aftertaste. An enjoyable LBV, well made and drinking nicely. 86/100. 12-Jun-12. Decanted 4 hours.
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
