1967 Quinta da Vargellas Vintage Port

Post by AHB » 15:43 Fri 02 Nov 2007

Opened on 31 October 2007 and drunk after 8 hours in the decanter.

Deep rose centre, turning orange at the rim. Nose subdued, spirity and dusty. An initial impression in the mouth of sweet strawberry syrup and a wine that is still quite robust. Plenty of fruit and an acidic structure to enjoy. A slight lack of complexity and a bit too hot in the mid-palate but a great aftertaste with good length. Enjoyable today and unlikely to change significantly over the next 10 years. 4-4 or 88/100.
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
