1948 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 09:27 Fri 22 Mar 2013

T48: dark red, 70% opaque. Big dark plum fruit. Hot. Good port, but junior to the N27, even on its second day. JDAW, January 2013

Brown in colour, with just a hint of redness. Mature on the nose, lovely of oopen. Sweet fruit, lots of honeyed raspberries. Fierce underlying acidity and a port which slowly thickens in the mouth. Quite aggressive palate and aftertaste but then a long and peppery finish. Enjoyable, but very aggressive. 89/100. 10 hour decant.
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
