N78: very translucent. Good red hue. Nosing of red cherry. Taste is light, artificial sugar. Tizer? Very light. CSD: ‟disjointed, light and alcoholic on the finish”. CSD: ‟super-thin dude”.

Indeed Dude,

this was a very light Port. Some could say it was just red water with some heat. Though had a nice balance except there was not a lot of taste left :( :roll:

Sad to say, but my WON, though being too light, much too light.
