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 Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
