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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
