1965 Taylor Colheita

Post by AHB » 23:54 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Bottled 2015. Olive brown in colour, 20% opaque. Pungent nose, full of colheita tones; really powerful. An immediate impact on the palate, rich and full of toffee but with a terrific punch of acidity. Massive on the palate with kumquat and cape gooseberry fruit, a great concentration. Cheek drying on the aftertaste and a huge finish. A terrific wine. 95/100. May 2015.
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
