Description

    Red Port 1978
    Massandra
    Bottle (6)
    Light brick color. The nose could not be more different than other wines tasted today, or more pretty! Smells like great old burgundy?! Funky, complex nose of sweet old red fruits, apricot, underbrush, earth and spice. Imagine a fortified version of 1972 Clair Dau Chapelle Chambertin. Silky texture and surreal concentration of what are usually nuanced flavors wrapped up in a powerful but seductive package. Well balanced though perhaps a little on the sweet side. Alcohol is well-knit and unobtrusive in a wine that begs to be savored. Another port to satisfy every burgundy lover. (95+pts FCM)
