Mz67. Re, 40% opaque. Again, grape-pip bitterness. A hint of grassy and mint, mid-weight, and good sweetness. Bigger mouthfeel than most.

Mature red colour, the colour of bricks; 20% opaque. Dusty nose which, with time in the glass, turned into dusty cherries. Medium bodied, light and a touch ethereal. Pleasant and balanced on the palate, full of dusty plums. A touch simple but perfectly serviceable. Lovely fragrance to the aftertaste and a wonderful fragrance to the finish. Nice port. 90/100.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
