The Taylor 1948 has an uneven bottom, so does not stand vertically.

In my naivety I am thinking that there is surprisingly little sediment.

T45: red, 30% opaque. Nose of red plums. Dry mis-palate. The fruit greatly diminished, there being a hint of red plum late. Big structure, great grip and shape and tannins. Another excellent port.

Rim is clear, light red/brown going to lovely burgundy core. Nose is full-on, almost heady, dried fruit and nuts, caramel and brandy. Palate has same notes as the nose and the ending is very long. Stunning port and my 2nd favourite of the night. 95 pts.

From Lord Litchfield's cellar. Deep orange, light in colour, 15% opaque. Attractive nose, spicy and rich, livens up nicely with a swirl. Smooth entry and a lovely texture, some dustiness in the fruit on the palate. The palate presence builds nicely until it grabs the senses. Lovely, modest aftertaste develops into a lovely, rich and flavoursome finish that never dominates but has a great presence. Beautifully floral. 94/100. 22-Mar-13. Decanted 2 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
