1927 Martinez

Post by AHB » 23:38 Sat 15 Nov 2014

Bottled by JG Thompson of Leith. Very pale, the colour of honey. Very oxidised on the nose (the cork was rotating as the corkscrew was applied) with lots of rosemary. Light and reluctant on entry with little flavour other than some brown sugar water. Gentle burt sugar finish offset by some grapefruit acidity. Pleasant, but nothing special and certainly not what it should or could be. 83/100. Drunk 24-Sep-14. Decanted 5 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
