1960 Dow vintage port

Post by AHB » 13:49 Mon 13 May 2013

Bottle f.

The sixth of eight bottles from the single lot of unknowns bought at auction. Honey borwn in colour, light rim; 25% opaque. Lots of rosemary on the nose, rosemary also dominates the palate although there is an underlying sweetness and acidity. Lots of rosemary on the finish and a good length. Not right, but very pleasant. 89/100. Drunk 23 April 2013 with a 6 hour decant.
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
