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.
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.
