1931 Taylor

Post by jdaw1 » 22:45 Mon 07 Oct 2013

With Andy Velebil visiting from California, it would have been rude not to. So we did, in The Bung Hole, on Tuesday 8th October 2013.

?31. The cork said just ‟PINHAO VINTAGE 1931”, but the label added ‟Taylor”. My guess, based on very little information at all, is that this is from one of Taylor’s regular suppliers, but not a Taylor.

Brown, 40% opaque. Nose horrible. Behind the nose was something: a light-weight port, with heat and raspberries.

Fascinating thank you Christopher but no longer drinking port.

Supplied by Army & Navy with a typed label reading Vintage Port Pinhao 1931 with a handwritten addition of "Taylor". Slightly cloudy, russet brown; 30% opaque. Spicy on the nose, showing cinammon and some of the alcohol, but pleasant nevertheless. Soft entry, showing some heat and some acidity - light bodied with lots of bruised apples and cinammon. Nice development and lovely layering on the palate. Big burst of hot cinammon on the aftertaste, lingering and full of root ginger; great length. Lovely, tawny and elegant - very enjoyable. 87/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
