1963 Avery

Avery's Special Reserve vintage port. Deep red with a bricking centre, 50% opaque. Sugary toffee apple on the nose, with a bit of marzipan. Deep and concentrated flavours on entry, big fruit flavours and powerful tannins - this delivers a huge palate presence with great depth and flavour. Some heat on the aftertaste, then a big licorice and intense aniseed finish of great length. A very impressive port with a long future still ahead of it. (Reported to have been 3 pipes Sandeman, 2 pipes Taylor, 1 pipe Fonseca.) 92/100. Drunk 23-Apr-14. Decant N/K.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
