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 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
