Mid-red colour, holding into the rim; 50% opaque. Sweet cranberry nose of mature port. Still some youthful tannins, chalky but soft, with lots of sweer, ripe fruit - with a good few years still ahead of it. Medium bodied, surprisingly dry, with plenty of fruit and some floral notes. Modest aftertaste, which leads to a long finish of sweet raspberry and gentle chocolate. 90/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
