Deep brick-red in colour, 70% opaque. VA and nail varnish on the nose. Unbalanced entry, full of VA. Dry edge to the fruit with lots of higher alcohol but also some tannins still on the palate. Not in good shape. NR.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

D45 (Christie’s London, 21st February 2005, a mixed lot), being my rather-rubbish contribution. Nose bacterial. Palate: “Fruit. Life. Light. Short. Maybe not life.”

† Also in that lot was a Cockburn 1927 that arrived broken. And Taylor 1912 and Niepoort 1963.
