Lamont:

This was the lightest wine of the tasting - a light burgundy color. The nose showed caramel, fudge, red fruit, cedar and vanilla. Coming back to it later it reminded me of old wood, orange peel and raisins - not quite as aromatic as the '60 but it's a great bouquet. It's well balanced with tangy dried and red fruits and a little spirit on the palate, no noticable tannin and a long finish. Delicious, fully mature port that was edged out by the 1960 sitting next to it. 95 pts

light amber colored

orange zest, allspice and some cardamon on the nose.

Sweet delicate, perfectly mature, caresses the palate with a fine candied cherry mixed with a touch of star anise finishing with a sweet sugary cedar touch.

A fantastic fully matured port.

96.
