Brown (and perfectly clear), sticky! Not hugely inspiring for me, but i had drunk rather more Tawny/Colheita than i am used to by the time we got round to this and was impatient for food!

JGH in particular liked this (and will hopefully confirm name, which i seem incapable of remembering), and courtesy of two first picks was 2nd of 8 in WOTN with 7 points.

It was Barão de Vilar, one of the more under-rated shippers in my opinion.

I liked this. Very drinkable.

This was good but suffered due to the food arriving. :lol: Overall though for me not a port that was particularily exciting to me. But I have also to say that I am not regularily drinking 20y Tawnies. :wink:
