1988 Quinta de la Rosa

Post by jdaw1 » 08:29 Fri 27 Jul 2012

On the Wednesday before the 2012 Olympics we were guests of His Excellency Dr João de Vallera, the Portuguese Ambassador to the Court of St James, at his official residence, wherein we had two bottles of Port from each summer-Olympic year, 1948 to 2008.

Rs88 (mine): red-pink, 50% opaque. Nose acrid. Even a whiff of poo! Taste concurred with the bad-bottle hypothesis: very dry, especially mid-palate; and far too thin.
