2005 Taylor Terra Feita

Post by AHB » 15:47 Fri 15 Mar 2019

More mature in appearance than the 2001 shown alongside; 70% opaque. Restrained and youthful on the palate with the tannins swamping the fruit. Dry and unbalanced, but with a great freshness from the acidity. One day, this will be a lovely wine. 91 14-Mar-19
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
