Deep brick red-brown, with a hint of green on the rim. VA from barrel maturation dominates the nose. The palate develops slowly, with some deep concentration lurking around.The acidity delivers a huge marmalade concentration of flavours. The aftertaste is gentle. This is less impressive than the 20yo shown alongside. 85/100. 10-Jun-12. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
