Deep red, opaque. Young nose, showing early maturity with lots of fruit - redcurrants and almonds. Neutral entry, very youthful, very lively and spicy - even quite hot! Fruit takes a lot of work to reveal. Hot aftertaste, hot finish, which slowly fades before leaving a dry finish of bitter blackcurrant skins. Needs much more time. 84/100.
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
