1977 Taylor

Post by AHB » 21:01 Wed 04 Oct 2017

Deep red colour, looking mature but not elderly, 70% opaque. Hollow nose, slightly dusty and lacking in fruit. Initially a sweet impression on the palate but then comes a hint of TCA. Very flat on the palate. Served blind this was guessed to be Fonseca 1977. Not Rated. Decanted 6½ hours. Drunk 28 September 2017.
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
