Cá60 (DRT). Cloudy, dark red. Rich, hint of heat, mid-weight. Another good Port. Mis-guessed as N70.

50% opacity, cloudy and red. Medicinal and menthol on the nose, which I like. Sweetness, cigars, lovely orangey thickness. Wonderful length and a syrupy mouthfeel. My WOTN. Guessed to be N66.

Bottled by Hedges & Butler. Slightly cloudy , full of fine sediment; 80% opaque. Muted strawberries on the nose, fruity and attractive. Soft and smooth entry with soft strawberry showing on the palate and gentle tannins lurking under the fruit. The late palate is more fragrant and complex, giving a better level of interest. Fragrant and tasty aftertaste and a delicious finish. Served blind this was guessed to be Sandeman 1970. 94/100.

This was also my wine of the night.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
