1983 Dow

Post by AHB » 00:10 Sun 01 Nov 2015

Appearing to be in early maturity, a mahogany red colour; 60% opaque. Lively nose of redcurrants and violets, well developed and attractive. Balanced entry, gentle sweet fruit with plenty of presence and body. Gentle and delicious, but developing very nicely with patience on the palate. Gentle sour fruit on the finish. Good length. This is lovely fruit-dominated port. Served blind this was guessed to be Taylor 1985. 89/100. 27-Oct-15. 20 hour decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
