BBR bottled. Plum red, rose rime; 60% opaque. Turkish Delight on the nose, full of rose water and icing sugar. Gentle entry with pronounced acidity and a slightly thinner texture than most other ports from this vintage. Quite dry, very floral and with lots of Turkish Delight. Oranges flash through the aftertaste, leading to a long orange syrup finish that turns into a lingering gentle coffee finish, with concentrated dried cranberry. 91/100. Drunk 25-Sep-13. Decanted 1 hour
N66, BBR, decanted 7¾pm. Brick red, 30% opaque. Lots of red fruit. Good sweetness, but not excessive, and middle weight. I failed to detect the TCA claimed by somebody though I have forgotten who. Good port, but slightly dwarfed by some of the comparators.
