Pale red / orange in colour (poor lighting); vry light and transparent centre. Huge nose of choclate oranges and marmalade but with an interesting twist of rose perfume. Slighltly hollow entry, slow to develop in the mouth but patience rewards with lovely fruit and plenty of bittler orange. A touch of heat on the aftertaste, which settles quickly to a soft and sweet lebgth of red licorice. Better weight than the Martinez 1975 shown alongside. 85/100. Drunk 1 Feb 2010 after 2 hours decanting.

Hints of vanilla and dark cherries on the nose. Fairly light in the mouth -- I got almost a cinnamon component about half way through. Someone also chimed in with red liquorices, which struck a chord. Lightweight, but not stupid. I would have been temped to write something like 'a burgundy lover's kind of port' -- except the person who liked it most hates burgundy. [shrug.gif] 85
