NV Dixons Double Diamond 10YO tawny

Post by AHB » 22:20 Thu 26 May 2016

Deep red-brown, the colour of polished redwood; 60% opaque. Delicious nose bringing fresh fruit salad, clean and attractive. Balanced entry with slight toffee tones and generous levels of orange and citrus; fresh and focused. A gentle aftertaste and a persistent yet delicate finish. A lovely, floral tawny port. 88/100. 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
