NV Barros 10YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 11:37 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Bottled 2015. Light brick-red colour, 20% opaque. Closed on the nose. Modest entry, light and elegant in style; more presence and sweetness that the Calem 10 year old tawny shown next to it. Slightly too little acidity for my preference but the better of the two 10 yo ports. 86/100. 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
