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 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
