Showed very well, but would it have gained a little more complexity if it had been bottled a few years later? A matter of taste of course..

Bottled 1976. Deep orange in colour, 30% opaque. Muted milky coffee and orange concentrate on the nose. Thick in texture, with sweet oranges dominating the palate and a good dose of balancing acidity. Delicious and lingering aftertaste and finish. This is a really tasty port that is big and mouthfilling and has a lovely balance. 90/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
