1967 Martinez

Post by AHB » 00:12 Sun 01 Nov 2015

20% opaque; a mature reddish-pink. Slightly spirity nose, mixing redcurrants and junipers. Smooth and light bodied entry. Spirity and acidic on the mid palate with the spirit showing quite fiercely. Lightly fruited and sweet but starting to dry out. Spicy on the aftertaste, gentle but lasting although the juniper harshness never leaves. Served blind this was guessed to be Quinta do Noval 1975. 85/100. 27-Oct-15. 1½ hour decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

This has some bottle variations now but that spirit does tend to protrude a bit regardless.

Mz67, originally ‘JDAW’. Red-orange, 25% opaque. Smooth, then too hot. Very orangey. Oleaginous. Far from great, but nonetheless quite good.
