GC77 single. Red, 90% opaque. Nose bitter, the bitterness being that of coffee granules. Taste starts with a similar bitterness, ‟then heat, then not much”.

very dark red, mouth filling experience, slight hint of coffee, well sructured great port; still quite closed; black berry muffin aroma; long finish; very nice port indeed!

Deep red, opaque. Little on the nose. Lots of dark fruit and tremendous tannins grip the palate. Grippy aftertaste, with dark chocolate and fruit of great length. This has masses of life ahead of it. 92/100.

Dry and un-composed. I didn't like this bottle.
