Tue 10th July 2012, A Blind Emergency Tasting

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

I notice that there is no review thread for this tasting, so I am creating one for future reference. I apologise for the brevity of my post.

The organising thread is here.

The wines drunk at this offline were Cavadinha 1996, Croft's Tercentenary Tawny (described on the label as being of great age), Dalva 1940 colheita, Dow 1962 LBV, Gaivosa 2004 LBV, Gonzalez Byass 1955, Taylor 1980 and Warre 1960. No-one appears to have posted tasting notes on any of these ports yet, but when I do I will try to remember to create links to and from this review post.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.
