Dark red. Lovely soft nose - good weight - red fruits, good tannin.

My guess was TV86.

Note that the wine was Cavadinha 1992.

Pale red, 50% opaque and with a light rose rim. Sweet on the nose (described by RAYC as violets) but with a mild menthol and sweet floral perfume. Light bodied, delicate but very spicy - full of curry powder, Mild flavours, slightly agressive with a tobacco bite. Short aftertaste with a bitter redcurrant finish. 83/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
