NV Barros 20YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 12:44 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Ochre orange in colour; 10% opaque. Ground pistachio on the nose, infused with orange blossom. Nice texture and a nice complexity with a good honey sweetness wrapped around soft, dry dates. Great palate development with a lovely fragrance. A significant step up in quality from the Barros 10YO tawny. 88/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
