Deep centre, but easily transparent, pinking on the rim; lighter than the 1967 alongside it. Dusty brambles on the nose, fairly open, deep redcurrants and gooseberries. Sweet and fruity on entry; delicious sweet strawberry syrup with good complexity. Pleasant flavour profile, which develops well. A big aftertaste, full of flavour and of good length. Delicious port, drinking extremely well but with many years ahead. 91/100. 13 Nov 2009.
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

S66: paler than that later revealed to be the S67. Pepper on the tongue, a bit light, but even so fuller than its sibling. ‟Later: a hint of mint.”
