GM78. Red-pink. 45% opaque. Nose had faint mint. To taste very bright spearmint. Entirely drinkable and pleasant, thereby being my best ever 1978.

Red/brown. Cacao on the palate that was decent and pleasant. Very Good/Excellent port and I could happily drink this anytime.

Deep orange in colour on the rim; 10% opaque. A lovely perfumed nose, a slight hint of peppermint. Fresh mint on the impact, with an unusual texture and taste — very full of mint over the top of a cinder / ash strewn core. An attractive texture. Delicious, fresh finish and an aftertaste of good length. Very pleasant. 90/100
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
