G94, Dark dark red, 95%+ opaque. Young pruney smell, but a hint of stink. Taste big, but still a baby. It was late; I was not eloquent.

All I have is "overly acidic" and "heat affected?". Last port of 22 and my note certainly is to be taken with a grain or three of salt.

Deep red and opaque. Vigorous bramble fruit on the nose. Silky and delicious texture, bringing a mouthful of soft, ripe fruit wrapped around a firm tannic core that gives a gentle pepperiness in the palate. Rich, ripe fruit on the aftertaste and a firm tannic dryness. Very impressive. 94/100
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

Sounds like I had a completely different port. Did I pick up the wrong glass perchance :roll: :?:
