1985 Taylor

Post by AHB » 00:21 Sat 01 Feb 2014

Brick red and evolved to appear mature. Lively nose, full of mace and all spice over the top of an attractive stewed red fruit. On the palate this is sweet and balanced - a lovely combination of youthful fruit and mature secondary flavours, balanced by a lovely acidity that provides focus and direction. This is a port which is drinking beautifully today. 89/100. Drunk at the BBR Port Walk on 28 November 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
