15% orange red brown, great legs. Some orange on the nose. Initial sweetness then quick to heat and a sharpness. Not unlike the Noval.

Modest colour, 25% opque. Brick-orange, very faint on the nose. Similar thick texture to most other ports from this vintage, really nice. Delicious and perfumed on the palate, light and delicate but not much complexity. A dose of complexity comes through on the late palate with a hint of tannins. Spicy and lively finish and a good length of lovely, bitter marmalade. 89/100. Decanted 8 hours.

Very light, pink. Clean acid sharpness in the nose, with a tiny amount of varnish, but light and fresh. This was refreshing, and light in the mouth as well, but not much else.
