1963 Dow vintage port

Post by AHB » 09:29 Fri 22 Mar 2013

D63: dark red, 60% opaque. Medium to light weight. Lots of early palate, but not mid palate. Plum like several others ports at the table. Though delicious, this was the lightest port at the table. JDAW, January 2013

Mature red colour, deep centre; 80% opaque. Hot spiced compote on the nose, very open and very attractive. Concentrated acidity on the palate with a burnt raisin and sharp cranberry. Lovely fruit finish of terrific length with distinct strawberries. 92/100. 10 hour decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
