Oscar visited London, so the team sampled some VPs and some stuff described as ‟brown sticky stuff”. Some were served sighted, some were blind.

Qv40Y: from memory no note taken soft and lovely, though light.

Bottled 2012. Deep brown in colour, with just a hint of green on the rim. Burnt toast and sweet dates on the nose. Deep flavour, intense and full of acidity. A big palate presence, very intense and with a concentrated finish of huge length. This is a very big port. 94/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
