1960 Dow vintage port

Post by AHB » 13:44 Mon 13 May 2013

Bottle b.

Another of the unknown bottles bought as a single lot at auction. Mid-orange in colour with a pale orange rim; 20% opaque. Pine resin all over the restrained nose. Sweet entry, more restraint and gentle tannins giving structure and bringing a luscious rich sweet orange on the palate. Fine but hot aftertaste with rich fruit and gentle chocolate tannins on the lengthy finish. Mature and delicious. Guessed to be Graham 1963. 91/100. Drunk 23 April 2013 with a 6 hour decant.
