20% opacity, dark red. On the nose, dark red fruit, some leather. Rich, full, syrupy, dark fruit, some spice, tannin in the finish. I guessed SW77.

Deep red, intensely coloured; 90% opaque. A hint of bottle stink on the nose, or perhaps a very slight touch of VA. The texture on entry is lovely, a rich mouthfeel and a great balance. Deep, dark fruit and some distinct tannins swim about on the palate; a palate which is well balanced and delivers good depth. The aftertaste is fabulous and delivers a finish which is full of black cherry and dark chocolate. Served blind this was guessed to be Fonseca 1985. 90/100. 09-Aug-17. Decanted 11½ hours.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
