Quite a nice surprise! I have had really poor experiences with 80s Taylor VP, but this was quite a lovely little wine. Black cherries and brown sugar on the nose, with maybe just a bit of cinnamon. Actually likely the best/most complete nose of the night. Pleasant in the mouth, with smooth transitions from start to finish. Kind of a theme of this evening, I found this port lacked a little umph, but was quite sufficient for casual consumption. 87-88
