Reddish-purple colour with fresh and harsh fruit on the nose. Pure fresh fruit on entry, backed by plenty of ripe and nutty tannins. Pure and fresh on the late palate. A huge, perfumed mouthful with great grip and an everlasting finish. Superb. 93-95/100. Tasted 07-Nov-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
