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