Almost identical in colour to the Warre 1966 shown alongside. Closed on the nose, showing some bananna and dust. Quite thick in texture, gentle tannins in the wine with plenty of fruit and a ripe acidic backbone; lots of late development. A delicious aftertaste, big flavours and a huge aftertaste. Really, really tasty and a very impressive port. 92/100. 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

Mz67: very similar in colour to the other triangle, later revelealed to be W66, but maybe an edge lighter. Nosing of coffee. To taste soft but rich, really quite lovely. Heat on the tip of the tongue, with notes of coffee. ‟Great.”
