Re: NV Mundy's Investiture Port (from AHB)

Mundy’s Investiture Port (AHB), bottled to commemorate the investiture of the Prince of Wales at Caernafon Castle on 1 July 1969.

Dark red, 60% opaque. Nose of red liquorice. Taste starts with heat, then a very full body with lots of plums. Really quite excellent.

Cherry rich red with 60% opacity..red liquorice on the nose and entry was smooth but had incredible heat which dissipated into a moderate furnace. Quite dry and sadly short finish...lovely wine.

Modest red, light rim, 50% opaque. Subdued nose, with strong eucalyptus and violets. Violets and lavendar are all over the palate, before the flavour profile changes to show sweetened juniper and redcurrants. Lots of heat mixed into the palate. Hot aftertaste , full of soft red licorice and a very spicy finish. 86/100.
