DfC84, the colour noted only as ‟red”. The nose, gentle but pleasant, had raspberry. Taste very clearly of lemon and strawberry. Light, nicely balanced, summer afternoon port.

Pale and evolved; 5% opaque. Unattractive nose, dough and biscuits mixed with sour grapefruit. A touch of faint tannin on the palate, very weak and faded fruit — perhaps some coffee and mandarin. The flavours do grow well on the palate. Lovely and elegant finish that is unexpected given the weak palate presence. 84/100.

Perhaps touch of the 1982. Very, very muted nose. Distant florality. In the mouth, a little sugar, but quite hard work to get anything else.
