Rich and red, looking quite youthful; 80% opaque. Huge amounts of baked fruit on the nose, sadly also with lots of stink. Hollow and bitter on the palate, with the flavours of the stink dominating. Thin and dried out. Also dry, and tasting of wood ash on the aftertaste and with a finish that is full of dry and bitter fruit, but does have a tremendous length. The rating for this wine was significantly marked down by the palate and nose. 82/100
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
