From magnum; decanted off very little, sludgy sediment. Pale auburn in colour, with a rose rim. Floral honey on the nose, pleasant but not strong. Dusty sweet redcurrant jelly on the tongue, with the tannins showing through as a gentle dusty persistence. Floral and rose-water flavours in the mouth, not a heavyweight, but perfectly pleasant drinking. Nice redcurrant aftertaste, with an enjoyable slight bitterness to the finish. More evolved than you would hope from a 35 year old port, but very pleasant drinking and a decent example of the 1975 vintage. 85/100. Drunk 12 May 2010 after 30 minutes decanting.
Needed something to drink and was quite thirsty.RonnieRoots wrote:nice, any particular reason for opening a magnum?
