1966 Dow

Post by jdaw1 » 19:02 Thu 11 Jun 2015

A theme suggested by Flash: the ‘Sweet-Spot Vintages’, being 1966, 1970, and 1977, in each of Dow, Graham, Taylor, and Warre. So on Wednesday 17th June 2015 we gathered at Davy’s Woolgate.

D66 (originally ‘X’). Glorious red, 50% opaque. Nose of red cherry. Very very delicious. Soft and sweet.

Mature appearance with a hint of brown on the rim, 50% opaque. Mature on the nose, delicious with lots of fruit. Smooth and tasty on the palate. Rich and rounded and very tasty. Lovely port with a delicious finish and a nice length. Guessed to be Graham 1966. 91/100.
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
