1983 Dow

By the glass from the Oxford & Cambridge Club. Mature red appearance; pruney nose, smelling of stewed fruit, probably from having sat in the decanter for too long. Pleasant flavour, slightly too harsh from being exposed to the air for too long. Reasonable aftertaste. This is OK Port but would have been better if it had been freshly decanted. 85/100. 02-Jul-14. Decant N/K.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
