Mature red appearance with some brick hints; 60% opaque. Lovely mature fruit nose, very attractive. Lovely entry, focused with noticeable acidity and red jelly-bean fruit. The tannins are almost fully integrated and support a nice palate complexity. Lovely red licorice finish of great length. This is a really nice port with a good depth of flavour and delicious current drinking. 90/100. 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
