He said it was the latest one. That is the newly-issued 2011.

Bottled 2011. Inky purple/red in colour with a narrow transparent rim. Young, sweetened blackcurrant on the nose. Gentle entry, soft tannins hold the palate in place. Powerful acidity sears the palate. Fruit is sweet, softened but dominated by the acidity. Dry, tannic aftertaste. Artificial sweetners on the lengthy finish. Just too different from the other ports shown this evening to be able to rate. NR. Decanted 8½ hours.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
