Deep red, slightly lighter than the Ramos Pinto Collector, but opaque. Blank nose, perhapos a slight hint of violets. Lovely texture, fragrant fruit and great balance - a really nice mouthfeel. There is a touch of licorice on the aftertaste and a good finish. This is terrific reserve port, and one which I would happily drink when in need of a young port fix. 86/100.
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
