KL70: dark red, 40% opaque. Mid+ weight; red cherries. Slight dryness mid-palate. Lovely port. JDAW, January 2013

Kopke. Firm red centre; 40% opaque. A bit of cabbage on the nose, with sharp spirit grabbing the attention. Restrained cherry syrup on entry, lacking a little acidity for balance but the tannins are still present. Sweetness and tannins dominate the aftertaste and finish. 87/100. Decanted 5 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
