Deep red: a fantastic colour. Quite subdued otherwise. I think AHB thought this might be a damaged bottle, although if it were it would only be mildly damaged.

Deep red, 50% opaque. A touch of bottle stink that supresses the nose. Biscuity, yeasty entry and a light- to medium-body. Surprisingly light and simple. Relatively short finish. Not a good or representative bottle of this port. 79/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
