Full of large pieces of particulate, but otherwise a deep orange colour; 30% opaque. Modest nose with a little mildly spicy fruit. Mild entry, with an elegant mid-palate. Mature and evolved, almost colheita-like. Massive finish with a huge, slighly hot, finish that is just fabulous. 89/100.
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

Light colour with lots of bits in it. Very, very sweet and cloying. I guessed Sandeman, probably for no particular reason.
