1948 Taylor vintage port

Post by AHB » 01:47 Sun 16 Dec 2007

Brown tinge on the rim, touch of stink on the nose. Balanced entry, with brown sugar, raisins, sultanas and some pecan pie. Spirity midpalate. The aftertaste develops a little but never delivers a lot. Slightly disappointing given some of the previous wines. 90/100.

This port had a bad start, being rather simple and boring. But boy did it develop in the glass. It got younger every time I sniffed and tasted it, and gained in complexity accordingly. Probably not the best example of this legendary port, but a very good bottle in the end. 93 points.
