Deep red colour, opaque. Fresh nose, very youthful fruit but no baby fat. Full of fruit on the attack, but immediately restrained by chalky, soft tannins. Closed on the palate, but clearly a big wine. Very floral on the late palate, with great complexity. Dry aftertaste and a along finish. Big and floral; a very good wine. Guessed to be Vesuvio 1997. 92/100 and my wine of the night.

I remember this to have been fantastic port. It might have been my wine of the night, but I can't be sure. RAYC might be able to help?

Indeed, RP94 was DRT’s WOTN.
