Deep magenta, with lifting fruit on the nose that carries a hint of muskiness. Smooth entry, then a rapid build-up of tannins and grip. Quite light- medium-bodied on the palate. Great length. Plenty of tannins but a little light on fruit. 89-91. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
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
