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 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
