FG82. The cork of this and of FG78 said Quinta do Cruzeiro, but Adrian Bridge said that this was not a SQVP.

Please, somebody with a photo of the cork post same.

Red, hint of pink, 30% opacity. Nose sour something wrong. Taste better than nose, but still off. Not drunk.

Burnt sienna colour, mahogany and 50% opaque. Very smelly on the nose with lots of bottle stink. Bottle stink flavours also come through strongly on the palate with a bitter, green apple acidic structure. Hollow afteraste followed by a bland, sugary finish. Very simple. 79/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
