At D+0 Hue very dark and red, :660000: or thereabouts. Nose somewhat closed, though plums are present. The taste very hot on the tip of the tongue, and rather light in the mid palate. Reasonable length, but the length is of something rather thin.

OK, acceptable emergency drinking. Will never be great. Another five years might help, but at the risk of lightening it before opening it.

More anon.

How did this port turn out? I was thinking of opening a bottle tomorrow.

The heat outlasted the tannins.
