Deep red colour, opaque. Pleasant fruity nose, slightly jammy. Sweet, jammy fruit on the palate, low in acidity and with very soft tannins. Pleasant and lingering fruit driven aftertaste. This is intensely fruity but lacks the structure needed to balance the sweet and jammy fruit - very pleasant but easy drinking and similar to a top quality Ruby Reserve or LBV. 86/100. Drunk 16-Sep-14. Decanted 24 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
