1997 Krohn Colheita

Immediately on decanting, very smooth, soft even, lots of red fruits, very lively. Very pale tawny colour, looks older than it is.

D+5 hours, still fresh and lively, probably not quite as good as when first opened

D+1 day, no significant change, maybe slightly harsher on the finish

D+2 days, still smooth but beginning to oxidise, time to drink up

Overall a very pleasant, easy-drinking port, well worth it's £17 price tag. Must buy some more...
There is no such thing as a large glass of Port, any glass of Port can be made larger.
