As this was on offer at Porto airport I could not resist.
Pop'n'Pour, dark as ink, smells of strawberry and a little bit of pepper, strawberry taste in the mouth, aftertaste: peppery and and a little bit of alcoholic heat, short finish, 81 P

the bottle is now open for a day, the wine really has improved, it's more smooth now and the fruit (strawberry) is not so dominant any more and more balanced, it has a mid-length finish now, I really should have decanted the LBV for two hours yesterday, I would rate it with 85 P. now, the next time I'm in the airport at Porto I will buy another bottle
