Not much to speak of on the nose. A lovely port for drinking now. Warming with a respectable finish. I voted this to be second out of the five wines in the flight.

González Byass 1970: embarrassingly mis-spelt on the placemats as ‟Gonzáles Byass” because I had copy-pasted Axel’s typing without checking. This error is regretted. Meanwhile my tasting notes compare this to the preceding port (Dalva) with just ‟Also mint and acid”.
