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