Mature brick red, 70% opaque. Interesting nose, pronounced and enjoyable with concentrated redcurrant and a touch of harshness. Balanced entry, concentrated and full of mature sweet fruit. Some red fruit but with plenty of figs and honey sweetness; a touch perfumed. A lovley perfumed aftertaste and then a big dose of acidity that powers through the fruit flavours. Slightly dry finish with dry fruit cherriness but an odd sickly sweetness. Good, but not great. 90/100.
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

G45. Dark red, 50% opaque. Nose of red fruit. Early palate very saccharine sweetness, then smooth, some heat. Ending very soft and lovely.
