Stewed fruit on the nose, crushed leaves adding an herbaceous twist. Gentle fruit with a powerful acidity. Lighter in texture than many and with gentle tannins. 88-90. Tasted over 1-4 days.
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
