1970 Taylor

Post by AHB » 22:15 Thu 04 Jan 2018

From the 2017 Berry Brothers Port Walk.

Deep red with a dark "smoked glass" look; 40% opaque. Fresh cranberries on the nose, fruity but alo a little bitter. Lots of ripe fruit on the palate balanced by a strong acidity. A little watery in texture, but very flavoursome — especially with air. A touch hot and harsh on the aftertaste, then some heat on the finish before the aniseed balls finish takes hold and stays...and stays...and stays. 92/100. 23-Nov-17.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
