Drunk at the "Very Boring" Offline on 3rd January 2013.
UK bottled by an unknown bottler. Modest red colour, firm centre; 20% opaque. More subdued on the nose initially than the half bottle, but showing a lovely fragrance and fruitiness. Sweet and fruity on the palate, medium weight but with a lovely complexity and presence. Sweet and concentrated syrup and cherry - like tinned cherry pie mix. Deliciious lingering concentrated finish with a better length than from the half bottle. Very enjoyable port making fine drinking today and likely also in 20 years. 89/100.
