N66, the darkest red on the table. To taste lots of tannin, with milk chocolate, but it has lost fruit, giving it a closed sensation. I think this has started the slide downhill. Others disagreed.

Deepest coloured of the 6 ports tasted on this evening; 55% opaque. Faint nose, attractive and fruity. Balanced entry, large and intense flavours right from the first impression. Very fruity on the fabulous mid-palate. Big floral aftertaste, hot initial aftertaste and a dry finish, with the tannins showing late. Really good port. 95/100.
