1927 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:35 Sun 10 Mar 2013

T27: red-red-brown, 50% opaque. Nose had varnish. To taste hot, very hot. Dry. And mid-to-light weight. Short, some acidity. T27 can be better than this - JDAW, Jan 2013

Lovely red colour, orange rim; 70% opaque. Burnt toast and raspberries on the nose. Delicate and elegant on the palate, developing to show a coffee undertone with lots of fruit. Heat on the aftertaste, then a soft finish of dry and gentle coffee. Lovely complexity. A nice port, dry and surprisingly elegant for a Taylor blend. 95/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
