1960 Martinez

Post by AHB » 00:11 Sun 01 Nov 2015

Reddish-brown colour; 20% opaque. Some bottle stink on the nose, but this blew off with a little patience in the glass. Smooth in texture initially but a little harshness comes over on the mid-palate. The harshness fades quickly to allow the dry fruit to come through. Very dry palate, but with mature and evolved raisin fruit dominating. Lovely dry tannins on the finish with a good length of dry licorice root. A lovely mouthful. Served blind this was guessed to be Dow 1972. 92/100. 27-Oct-15. 13 hour decant.
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
