W83. A lovely colour, red, 50% opaque. My first sip was so foul that it had to be spat. Later, with a new glass, less foul, but still not good. Oh dear.

Red-brown. 50%. A quiet nose, but very stalky. Very dry indeed, soft, thin, not a lot going on in this. Not nearly as bad as some others but disappointing.

It smelled like Warre but there the comparison ended-no real body or hold to it at all.

Modest red colour, with a rose rim; 60% opaque. Antiseptic or metallic nose - a slight oxidation perhaps? Nice texture, and a foul taste - too acidic, really unpleasant. NR.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
