On Thursday 19th December 2013 a subset of the obvious suspects gathered at The Bell in Wendens Ambo to taste old, peculiar and unknown bottles.

From a double magnum. Ruby red, 95% opaque. Raspberries leap out of the glass on the nose, with some gentle nutty elements. Soft texture on the palate, with the raspberries dominating the sweet fruit flavours. Gentle tannins swirl around on the palate. This is leisurely port, gentle and relaxed witht he fruit still being fresh and primary although the finish is rather short. 85/100.
