Light. Cough mixture and cherries, nice mouthfeel. Pleasant and soft. Very drinkable and will probably only deteriorate from now on. Drink up.
Port is basically a red drink

Second flight, seved alongside the Guimaraens 1988.

Light, with a sweet, slightly dusty nose. To taste some dark currant and blackberry, but also very bitter. A green, hoppy bitterness. Finish quite hot. All in all an ok-ish port, maybe slightly better than the 1984, but not by much. Drink up if you have some. 85 points.
