Thin transparent rim on a powerful magenta port. Lovely nose full of perfumed fruit, lifted and elegant. Delicious sweet fruit swamps the entry, generous and balanced. The tannins are soft and hidden behind impressive levels of fruit but are present in a big way, always threatening to grab control. Lots of acidity promising a long future. Big fruity, chewy finish and a great length. 91-93/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
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
