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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
