Deep burnished orange in colour, 80% opaque. Pronounced nose, full of dried fruit and dried flowers. Thick in texture, concentrated sweet fruit and powerful ripe acidity. Good palate presence. A touch of heat on the aftertaste, then a big and powerful finish. Really impressive port. 90/100. 1 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

S67, brought by RAYC but paid for by the team. Decant time not noted. Brick red, 50% opaque. Port slightly cold, but also hot. Gentle bitterness throughout, nicely balanced. Good port, but the bitterness too strong for my preference.
