Bottled by John Harvey & Sons of Bristol. Deep red with rich, brick tones. Gentle Christmas cake with rich, candied cherry - very lovely. Soft and silky texture with gorgeous flavours of rich cherry, flavoursome spices and a slow build up to a massive palate presence and perfect balance. Long and wonderful finish. A superb bottle of a very fine port. 96/100. Drunk 24-Jun-14. Decanted 7½ 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
