The Notes

Tasting 1

Notes: Bottled 2017. Hand annotated with a bottling date so there are presumably decanting a cask. Amber middle fading to nothing on the rim- much more mature than I expected. Little on the nose, presumably because I am drinking it outside. In the mouth, very little fruit; slightly acidic and a bit too grippy. Very good long aftertaste with toffee and caramel. Would probably benefit from a little more time in the bottle.

Date: 23rd July 2018

Rated*: P

* A Note on Ratings

My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: N—No; P—Possibly; or C—Certainly. Ports generally are rated against others of their category. Therefore, a Ruby Port which I rate as C for Certainly good, might not be as good as a Vintage Port which receives the same rating. I sometimes modify my rating with a plus or minus indicating that the Port is better or worse than might be expected for this category.
