My note: "Slight VA - Age - Clear rim - Oranges".

What can I say? It was getting late in the evening!

D+5 days, from a 60ml sample bottle.

Some nail varnish on the nose. On swirlling this is replaced by lots of orange. A little thin and hot on entry. The mid-palate is like a dark chocolate orange cream and is quite delicious. The finish is long and very sweet. Good port.

Light red colour, orange rim that shows some age. Sweet, light entry; slightly bitter with tannins outweighing the fruit. Very sweet. Light finish, slightly dry but of good length. 83/100.
