Cinnamon and cardamon backed with a fading baked strawberry.

Sweetness on the entry followed with a complex blend of spices. Spicy cinnamon and a touch of black licorice, light medium bodied port that reminds me stewing strawberries.

It ends with a hazelnut finish that lingers around for a little while. Pure finesse and the best 1975 i've ever had.



The fruit has faded but it's picked up much more body. Surprisingly the body has fleshed out in to a medium/full bodied port. Incredibly smooth and spicy.

I love the feel, but I needed the fruit that was there yesterday.
