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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
