Mz67. Glorious red, 45% opaque. Restaurant nosing of pepper and cooked fat, so nose of port not noted. Lighter than the C67, but still a good weight. Taste of unripe strawberries. Very sweet. A hint acrid mid-palate, but very fine drinking.

Very impressive colour, not lighting up the palate but nevertheless very pleasant drinking indeed ***+ (89)

Heat on the nose - fantastic red colour - medium weight with a nice texture but a little hot and short in the finish.
