1863 Taylor Colheita

Post by AHB » 23:31 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Bottled 2013. Beep brown in colour, 90% opaque and darker than the Scion shown alongside. Big and powerful on the nose, full of rich beef bouillion. Bold and concentrated on the palate, dense and sweet with a lovely acidity. Concentrated orange and molasses flavours that deliver a huge presence. A wonderful aftertaste that explodes in the mouth. Some dryness to the start of the finish. A lovely intense port. Chosen by Beatriz Machado, Wine Director at the Yeatman. 97/100. Drunk 26-Sep-14. Pop 'n' pour.
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
