1996 Barros colheita

Post by AHB » 22:16 Thu 26 May 2016

Bottled 2016. Light olive brown colour, 40% opaque. Slight almond paste nose. Smoothly textured, slightly hollow in flavour at first but bringing pleasant honey tones to the mid-palate. Honey persists with a bitter edge to the finish. Good mouthfilling finale showing some tannins. 85/100. 22-Apr-16
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
