Sealed with a cork branded Martinez 1945. A reddish brown colour, 40% opaque. Warm on the nose, a touch of furniture polish and some acetone. Elegant on the palate, some dusty cherry on the mid palate; sweet and elegant. Rather a light style, very much elegant and spicy rather than a power of a port. Some heat on the aftertaste, then an elegant and slightly dry finish that is full of cranberry and library dust. A lovely port in a delicate and elegant style. 93/100.

Later this port had become thinner and lighter and was much less impressive.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Ck45. red-pink, 30% opaque. Palate saccharine, and very hot. Then faint red cherry. Later it was better, though still simple.

Axel P: pray say more about this non-declared declaration.
