Scoring 17+ Dionysian points, and having 20% alcohol, the the 35 year-old Port was quite enjoyable. It’s from a very good vintage, but not a great one. It cost only $35 back then in 1988. It was bottled in 1987.
Sweet, rich black fruits with loads of blueberry and black cherry rose to the nose from the glass.
Every Vintage Porto needs to be decanted. The old wine was still filled with color and flavors that lingered in the air. It was soft, and the sweetness kissed your tongue. I can keep an open bottle, after vacuum pumping out the air, for at least a week and taste it every other night. In Vino Veritas.
