1977 Smith Woodhouse

Post by g-man » 13:45 Wed 02 Sep 2015

Popped and poured.

Deep red with no signs of bricking.

Nose of sweet milk chocolate that follows through on the palate with notes of plums, black cherries but with noticeable spirits adding to a slight over burn on the palate.

As noted with many other tastings, this is an incredibly young port.

88-89 now but certainly with tons of potential

Thank you for this. I will try to wait 'til 2020 for mine, but I bet they don't make it.
