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