NV Marks and Spencer's Finest Tawny Reserve

Post by AHB » 21:19 Sat 13 Apr 2013

From Quinta & Vineyard Bottlers Lda. A 50ml bottle that came from an M&S port gift set containing a bottle of this, a bottle of finest ruby reserve, a bottle of fine ruby and a bottle of 2007 LBV.

On the nose this smells of toffee and coffee. Pleasant thick texture and medium weight on the palate with sweet dried dates and balancing acidity. The acidity burns on the aftertaste, but then gives way to a dense dried date finish of reasonable length. Perfectly drinkable. 85/100. 11-Jan-13. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
