With Andy Velebil visiting from California, it would have been rude not to. So we did, in The Bung Hole, on Tuesday 8th October 2013.

Mz70. Red, 40% opaque. Taste has heat and cherries. good weight, good fruit, mid sweetness. Only just shy of my voting zone.

Mid red, mature with a pale rose rim. Perfumed nose that is very attractive with lots of floral tones. Delicious entry, deep and dense in flavour; generous levels of fruit, very sweet. Really gentle tannins and a lovely texture. Delightful aftertaste with big flavours and a long finish. Showing really well. Delicious Port. 92/100
