1983 Dow

Post by AHB » 20:57 Thu 03 Jul 2014

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): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
