1940 Cabral white colheita

Post by AHB » 22:05 Fri 23 May 2014

Toffee coloured appearance, murky and with a green rim. Toffee and mandarins on the nose, rather attractive. Sweet entry, lots of toffee and sweet orange flavours. Lovely complexity, a nice sweetness but balanced by sweet citric acidity. Lovely lingering finish, gentle but persistent. Very enjoyable port. 89/100. 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
