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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
