Post by jdaw1 »

On Saturday 9th May 2015 we had a splendid horizontal of 1945 in The RAF Club, ably arranged by Axel Probst/WorldOfPort.de.

Burnished gold colour, 30% opaque. A touch oxidised and dirty on the nose, slightly off-putting. Rather flat on the palate, lacking in fruit but with lots of brown sugar. Little complexity, only sugar with the fruit having faded. Pleasant burnt brown sugar finish. Pleasant, but not great and a weaker wine in this context. 88/100.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.
