Dumpy bottle. Mid red, mature, 20% opaque. Spicy nose, lots of nutmeg and cranberry. Sweet and focused entry; fabulous fruit, beautiful poise and balance. Terrific complexity. Stunning balance still with tannins on the palate. Amazing and fabulous port. 98/100. Drunk 04-Jun-13. Decanted 9 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

Ni70 dumpy. Only taste noted: massive, sweet, balanced. Lovely. Huge. Later I noted ‟still fantastic”.
