1990 Factory House Bicentennial Blend

Deep red in colour, mature looking. Slight heat on the nose but also with red cherries and spices, an attractive combination. Smooth in texture, silky and elegant. Lovely mature fruit but with a slight dryness to the tannins and palate. Gorgeous sweet fruity finish of great length, lingering and lovely. Very tasty and lovely port with a fine elegance. Served blind this was guessed to be Offley '66. 90/100. Drunk 26-Sep-14. Decanting time N/K.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
