Deep red in colour with a touch of bricking, opaque centre. Soft red fruit on the nose, sweet and ripe. Modest fruit on entry with generous tannins and pleasing acidity. Soft and straightforward but well balanced, leading to a dry cherry stone aftertaste and finish. 90/100. Drunk 26-Sep-16.
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
