1996 Barros colheita

Post by AHB » 11:35 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Bottled 2015. Rusty red colour, 60% opaque. Toffee apples on the nose, but not much showing. Nice texture on the palate, rich and rewarding with lots of toffee apple flavours and a surprising amount of tannins that combine to give a lovely fruity and chewy palate and finish. Delicious. 91/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
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
