1977 Gould Campbell Vintage Port
Amazing color. Dark ruby center, with just a hint of garnet. This is very impressive on the nose. Crushed raspberry, coffee, licorice and chocolate. Complex. What a palate. Big, rich and powerful, yet balanced and pleasing. Full, medium-sweet and caressing. Silky. Drink it for the rest of your life. Why wait? Underrated around the world. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Drink now. (Web-2008)
Excellent deep but layered blackish crimson. Fragrant but mysterious. Very well constituted. Glorious stuff with tannins only just discernible underneath initially. Just emerging to drinkability but tasting revealed absolutely masses of tannin underneath. My first impression was that I would like to have this in my cellar. On re-tasting I discerned a very slight woodiness on the nose. 19/20 points.
