GC77, aka CPR, decanted 07:00. Dark red, 70% opaque. Nose of spearmint and blackberry. Youthful sweet dark-plum fruited. Lovely.

Two people (Alex and another) said that it was slightly corked, but below my insensitive TCA threshold.

Decanted 12 hours, 50% opacity, dark red. Red candied fruit from the nose. Tannic mouthfeel - a bit gritty. I also thought it very mildly corked - but not enough to stop me drinking it! Guessed to be F77.

Thought the nose on this rather quiet. I was the 'other' who thought it slightly corked. Dry, dusty, but quiet and light. Didn't really strike me terribly.

Appearing in early maturity with a soft red rim; 80% opaque. Corked nose, mild but distinct. Soft and smooth on entry but bitter and with the cork taint showing through. Served blind this was guessed to be Dow 1977. NR.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
