Dark red, no purple. Slightly harsh nose with sour red fruit. Sour fruit shows on the palate still slightly blackcurrant-ey but with some secondary fruit flavours beginning to show. Good acidity and soft tannins give a pleasant structure and leads on to a gentle finish of charcoal tannins and jammy fruit. Pleasant, but by no means great, port. 85/100. 06-May-15.
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
