1980 Gould Campbell

Post by AHB » 09:04 Mon 28 Dec 2015

Mature brick red, 70% opaque. A wonderful nose of mace and all spiced infused fruit. Gentle entry, bringing elegant fruit that is mature and full of lovely spice. An enjoyable aftertaste with good elegance. A gentle but spice edge. 93/100.

Tasted at the Berry Brothers Port Walk on 26 November 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994

40% opacity, brown-red. Spicy nose. Smooth, soft entry, with a fantastic mix of fruit, spice and chocolate flavours. This was a real surprise on the night for me, excellent port.
