Cr66: red, 60% opaque. Big fruit, red, but not berries. Plum-like, but not plum. Somebody near me thought cherries, but not that either. Sweet unctuous texture; good weight; great length. Grade-A port.
My note begins "Smells of cheese" - unfortunately I didn't note which particular cheese but my memory is telling me it was ripe Camembert. More substance than the 63, with a lovely texture and some tannins still kicking around that suggest it is not about to fall apart. Delicious port once you get past the nose.

Deep red, slightly cloudy; 60% opaque. Concentrated ribena and an odd sage tone on the nose. Sweet and nicely balanced entry; subtle redcurrant and cranberry flavours grows to big levels. Great texture. The aftertaste is a combination of spicy sage and sour, stalky cranberry. A long lenth; very sweet. Probably at its peak. A shade too heavy and dense. 89/100.
