Mz67. Re, 40% opaque. Again, grape-pip bitterness. A hint of grassy and mint, mid-weight, and good sweetness. Bigger mouthfeel than most.

40% opacity, red brown. Nose muted, sugared candy. Smooth, thin, slight heat, no depth or body - light.

Mature red colour, the colour of bricks; 20% opaque. Dusty nose which, with time in the glass, turned into dusty cherries. Medium bodied, light and a touch ethereal. Pleasant and balanced on the palate, full of dusty plums. A touch simple but perfectly serviceable. Lovely fragrance to the aftertaste and a wonderful fragrance to the finish. Nice port. 90/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
