GM64, decanted 18:30 (HJS): Lovely red, 50% opaque. Palate very sweet, a little heat at the start, red-fruited, and fully mature. Guessed to be Malvedos, year unspecified, entirely consistent with the outcome. Lovely bottle, and worthy of a full declaration.

30% opacity, wonderful clear glossy red. Couldn't get much on the nose, in the mouth, very smooth, sweetness and fruit, mature but retaining great balance. Correctly guessed to be GM64 :shock: :D :CC0000:

Ex-cellars. Copper red colour, 30% opaque. Initially muted on the nose, a swirl produces some ripe and spiced fruit. Lovely texture on the powerful palate that is full of rich and spiced fruit still with some soft tannins remaining. Dusty fruit, slightly dry but with great presence. The aftertaste of dried cherries and dark chocolate, then a long, lingering and chewy finish. 91/100. Decanted 2 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
