Lamont:


1983 (1+hrs)
Dark burgundy color. Sweet nose of ripe raspberry, caramel, fudge, and liquorice - slightly spirity. Juicy red/black berry fruit showing good balance and a long finish. A delicious port with plenty of life left that was perhaps a little underappreciated due to the excellent wines tasted along with it. 93 pts

Dark purplish red

Tangy fermented strawberries with a touch of orange zest on the nose.

This sweet young port tasted of slightly watered condensed milk with some milk chocolate. Sweet red cherries flesh out the rest of the flavors and finishes short of some more milk chocolate.
