D77: decanted 3pm/ Lovely bright red, 50% opaque. Nose dry little sweetness with dry cherries. Taste splendidly full-bodied. Dry, hinting at cherry. The stays stays in the mouth, starting dryish, becoming plum. Long and large and full. Very yummy.
Vegetable nose - nice thick and smooth texture with lots of red fruit. Dry finish, some heat, and very long. Excellent.

Medium on colour, slight cabbage on the nose, but none in the taste. Lovely and smooth, delicious flavour, glass seemed to keep emptying itself. Slightly less fruity than previous tasted D77. Very nice port and my WOTN.
Between 3hrs30mins and 7 hrs decant time, some in bottle/decanter, some in glassRoy Hersh wrote:Julian,
Nice TN, you mention it was decanted at 3, but for those of us who were not there ... how many hours of total decant time? Thanks!
