Mid red core, good rim; 70% opaque. A touch of heat on the nose, full of spicy tobacco. A very slight touch of VA, but rather light. Sweet entry, soft and gentle; flavours grow nicely on the palate with only gentle tannins. Hot aftertaste, soft red jelly baby finish before a bracing black licorice finish. 91/100. Decanted 9 hours
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

W70, Anduze decanting, opened 07:00, decanted 10:00. Dark red, 50% opaque. Nose of strawberry, lightly. Palate also strawberry, but slightly lighter than perfect — oh the joy of such fussiness. But soft strawberry to the very and delicious end. Rounded, gentle, big, lovely.
