Cr75: red-pink, 40% opaque. Middle-to-light weight, candy-tastic with no fruit. Very pleasant, but simple. Nice drinking, if cheap.

Sweet nose - very different to all the others in the line-up. Light and slightly woody (tawny, not corked). Nice drinking port but outclassed by the four that preceded it.
