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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
