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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
