Deep red in colour, almost opaque at 90% opacity. Pronounced nose with salty caramel and little fruit. Dirty flavours on the palate. Unpleasant. A bad bottle. NR.
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)
