Shown alongside a Martinez 1967 and almost identical in colour. Sweet redcurrants on the nose, showing some mature fruit but also a little unknit. Plenty of fruit on entry, lively development on the palate. Good complexity and lovely development; tannins are almost imperceptible. Terrific aftertaste and a really lovely, refined aftertaste that lasts a long time. Very lovely, with an elegance and refinement that shows real class. 90/100. Drunk 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

W66: Very similar in colour to the other triangle, later revealed to be Mz67, perhaps an edge darker. Nosing of ‟rotten melon”. To taste rich and lovely, heat on the side of the tongue. Later ‟rich and fat”, with coffee.
