1977 Gould Campbell

Post by AHB » 22:09 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Deep red, still opaque, dark and powerful looking. Little on the nose; swirling produces a dark and brooding blackberry and damson. Slightly watery texture. Tight palate with a good dose of tannins; a large volume of fruit but brutal and unbalanced with a dry and bitter core. Dry fruit stones and sweet plum finish which gets very peppery mid-finish. Long length. The bitterness is slightly off-putting. 93/100. Drunk 26-Sep-14. Decanted 36 hours.
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
