GM87. Dark red, 90% opaque. Taste had stewed prunes, and big. A bit like a Vesuvio. Sweet. Needs 10 years.

Impenetrable black - red. This was the most backward port tonight. Disjointed and elemental. This will have decades to go. What potential. Should have been declared.

Deep red and opaque. Lovely sweet fruit on the nose, full of ripe brambles. Sweet bramble and pipe tobacco on the palate, but with underlying dry tannins. Delicious fruity aftertaste. This is really nice port with many years needed in the cellar. 90/100
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
