1977 Taylor

Post by AHB » 12:28 Tue 26 Mar 2013

T77: dark red, 40%. Nose had stink, a trace of which present also in the palate. Also red cherry. Lighter than the T70. JDAW, January 2013

Cherry red, with a deep centre; 70% opaque. Sadly showing cabbage and bottle stink on the nose, but this did reduce with time in the glass. Lovely balance on entry; sweet and gentle fruit with perfect mid-palate balance and sweet cherry fruit. A touch simple on the palate, witht he tannins barely noticeable. The tannins show on the aftertaste, driving a modest length finish. 89/100. 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
