1980 Taylor

Post by AHB » 23:08 Thu 12 Mar 2015

Imperial College stock. Dark red and well coloured. Fruity nose but with secondary maturity, inviting. Sweet redcurrant cordial on the palate, with good focus and soft tannins. Nice texture and patience allows several phases of flavour to develop. The aftertaste is fruity and the finish shows the tannins again, roasted and toasted. Tasty port that is more elegant than normal for Taylor's ports. 90/100. Drunk 10-Mar-15. 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
