1975 Martinez vintage port

Post by AHB » 14:56 Fri 23 Nov 2012

Orange with a rose coloured core, looking like elderly port; 20% opaque. Nosing of rhubarb and brown sugar, Soft brown sugar on entry, then strong acidity that makes the mouth water. Soft marshmallow on the palate, full of tawny tertiary flavours of nutskins and sugar. Soft and elegant on the aftertaste and tingling finish. Pleasant, straightforward drinking which is best drunk soon. 84/100. Drunk 26-Oct-12 after decanting 2 hours
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
