My very brief note simply says "Light. Pleasant. Wine of the Flight"
"The first duty of Port is to be red"

1970 Robertson’s Rebello Valente: palest of the flight (being Br, K, RV, and RO). Nosing of lovely soft fruit, perhaps mint and apples. The apple returns in the taste, which is light, pleasant, and refreshing. The perfect breakfast port to serve with fruit salad. Wine of the flight.
