TN: 1957 Ficklin Port

Tasted blind, but known to be a bottle brought by Eric Ifune. Does not taste like anything else we’ve had today (generally older colheitas from ‘7 years). It smells more like a 60+ year old Scholtz Hermanos Málaga Lagrimae Christi. This has a stewed character, with umami flavor. A fun drink, but not as good as the colheitas. This is a blend made from grapes 1948-1957. (21 Jul 17)

Nice wine, but no cigar. [d_training.gif]
Ambition driven by passion, rather than money, is as strong an elixir as is Port. http://www.fortheloveofport.com
