1964 Taylor Vargellas

Post by AHB » 23:34 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Drunk at O Paparico with Glenn Eliott in his 50th year. Brick red with evident browning but cloudy making it difficult to judge opacity. Delicious spicy nose, smelling slightly of menthol. Gentle entry, builds slowly with a nice thick texture. Spicy sweet candied cherry on the palate, slightly out of balance through a bit of a lack of acidity. Wonderful flourish from a big burst of candied maraschino cherry with nutmeg and cinnamon. Great length. 88/100. Drunk 26-Sep-14. Drunk 2 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
