Firm red, just starting to show bricking; opaque at the centre. A nice nose starting to show some caramel complexity with the fruit. A lovely smooth texture on entry that is very silky. Gentle structure and beautifully poised fruit. Still very primary but easy to drink. Rather restrained on the aftertaste but a long burnt sugar and rhubarb finish. Surprisingly good. 91/100. 24-Feb-15.
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
