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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
