S48, Decanted 160:00; first tasted about 19:15. Red, 60% opaque. Medium-full weight. Strawberry fruit. But later it had become duller: the ideal decanting time might be quite short.

20% opaque, deep orange in colour. Subdued on the nose, showing a little orange peel. Quite dry entry, light / medium bodied but develops very nicely on the palate to give reach medium bodied levels. Lovely orange peel aftertaste of modest length. 88/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
