1960 Dow vintage port

Post by AHB » 13:50 Mon 13 May 2013

Bottle g.

The seventh of eight bottles from the single lot of unknowns bought at auction. Mature red colour; 20% opaque. Gently spicy on the nose with lots of pine and rosemary. Rosemary on the initial impact, then some sweet fruit starts to show but the rosemary never stops dominating. Gentle charcoal tannins show on the aftertaste before a fairly short finish. Pleasant port. 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
