Very dark: as deep in colour as the Taylor 1955. Quite gentle on the nose, perhaps a touch muddy. In the mouth, a little fruit and some astringency.

Some sediment clouding the deep orange colour. Burnt rubber and cabbage on the nose. Sweet and full in the mouth - lacking fruit flavours but with a nice line in leather and meat juices. Long and very full aftertaste and a big, flavoursome finish. This is tasty port. 89/100.
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
