1970 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 12:27 Tue 26 Mar 2013

T70: red, 40% opaque. Big taste, briefly with heat. Dark cherry. Very long, with consistent dark cherry throughout. JDAW, January 2013

Bottled by BBR. Brick red in colour; 80% opaque. Restrained nose, showing attractive but dusty cherries. Sharp and aggressively bites the sides of the tongue on entry. Medium bodied, with the dusty cherries also showing on the palate, supported by big levels of acidity. Lovely soft tannins on the finish, witha great length of burnt toast and cherry jam. Overall, this is well structured and surprisingly restrained - not one to hurry to drink. 92/100. Decanted 5 hours.
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
