Deep red, 70% opaque. Subdued on the nose with lots of dusty redcurrants. Very dusty on the palate, medium in weight. Lots of delicate floral flavours develop late, with the delicacy perhaps indicating a lightweight palate rather than a medium weight Very powdery tannins, very dusty and consistent with the delicacy of the wine. Soft and very sweet finish, full of icing sugar and bubbe gum, A little shorter on the finish that most of the other ports shown alongside. 88/100. Drunk 25-Sep-13. Decanted 1 hour
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

W77. Big, with a hint of grit. Good weight, strawberry identifiable within the red fruit medley. Good port, but under-appreciated on the day.
