Modest red colour, lighter rim; 40% opaque. Empty on the nose, virtually nothing showing, just a slight grapiness. Modest entry, restrained attack. Pleasantly sweet but with a lovely honey flavoured acidity providing support. Good balance to the gently perfumed falvours. Lightly flavoured aftertaste and finish. A very pleasant palate making a nice wine, but still one which will improve with more time in the cellar. 89/100. Decanted 8½ 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

W77, decanted 11am. Dark red, 40% opaque. Light nose. Palate very light, with acid late. Otherwise good. (Clearly I had been overcome by late-evening brevity.)
