ChAA95, magnum, decanted 4am. Red, 30% opaque, to brown at edge. Nose had a touch of VA. The adjective for this port, agreed by many, and repeated in my notes, was ‟thin”. Not the finest of adjectives. Thin rather than just light; weak throughout. Hint of strawberry, and some acidity early palate. Entirely drinkable, and if you have any, that is what you should do with it. Soon.

Edited to add the ‟AA”.

Was this Qta. da Agua Alta? If so, my experience was very similar to this.

It was Agua Alta, but I forgot to put that in the thread title. To be fixed.
