Deep red; light nose showing fruit and a nice seaside freshness. Lightweight entry with strong and slightly aggressive tannins, acidic fruit comes through on the mid-palate. A firm afteraste and a long finish of cinammon sours. 86-88. A snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013 at BFT 4.
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
