1966 Taylor Colheita

Deep olive brown colour with hints of green on the rim. A big nose, powerful and petrolly. Slightly thicker texture than most port, with rich honey and flower perfume on the palate with an acidity that builds up gradually to deliver a big and powerful mouthful that ends in a huge finish. Everlasting port! 94/100. 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
