Mid red, mid maturity in colour. Perfumed nose with lovely lavender, really delicate and attractive. Lovely texture, mid weight palate presence. Lovely soft charcoal tannins support lots of sweet raspberry fruit. Delightful palate. Wonderful aftertaste and a very full finish of good length, and very sweet at the end. 88/100. 7 hour decant.
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

Light, but lovely colour changing from ruby to garnet. Slightly dusty / leathery on the nose, but also hints of some very nice red fruit. On the palate some dark plum, cherry and strawberry. Hints of coffee and refined tannin. Not overly complex, but a lovely elegant port that's drinking extremely well.

S70. Pink-red, 30% opaque. Nose had some red fruit, and a hint of VA. Taste noted only as ‟cherry then strawberry”.
