Second lightest. Similar story. I drank the last of a full case several years back (it really changed quite dramatically 7-8 years back from one of the darkest to the lightest). But this difference here is the early maturity still leaves a moderately attractive mature port. Note of dates, figs, and a lighter smoky spirity palate with little direct fruit remaining. A little grip on finish but overall a bit attenuated. This was definitely better 5-10 years ago for me.
40% opacity, red core, orange rim. Complex nose. Mid-weight, fruit is quite crisp, late palate has some heat. Fruit has citrus, notes, lemon. Much more mature and evolved than the other '94s on show.
