T85: red red pink, 70% opaque. Nose rather closed. Taste soft, mid-weight, with cranberries. Good port, but not as good as a good bottle of T85.

Deep red, firm rim; 45% opaque. Lovely perfumed nose, with lots of fruit - very attractive. Medium bodied mid-palate revealing a restrained fruitiness with a cigar ash undertone and very gentle tannins. Some restrained heat on the aftertaste, followed by a long finish of dried blueberries - and tannins which show at the end of the finish. 87/100. 22-Mar-13. Decanted 7 hours.
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
