Modest red colour, 90% opaque at the centre. Menthol on the muted nose. Modest and restrained entry, with lots of redcurrant and sweet fruit but very lightbodied. Dry and furry aftertaste, with a soft and gentle raspberry finish. An enjoyable effort. 82/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
