Youthful, purple colouring. A pleasant taste without much of a finish for me. Again I think it suffered in comparison against some other of the ports that evening. I guessed at a Taylor's Q de TF 88 which I offer for members' amusement. I would like to try this one again sometime to see if it showed better in a different bottle.

Did I get my apostrophe right there Julian? Reading some of the threads on punctuation has given me paranoia and I am second guessing myself :D

Ch85, decanted noon. Red, 80% opaque. Palate very floral with white pepper. Slightly light mid palate, and ending in strawberries. Really very pleasant Port. Entirely drinkable. Entirely in fourth place behind D70 and N50 and V94. No points was the correct score.

Perfection! Even the use of ‘which’ rather than ‘that’ is commended.

I'm sure you can get a room, once Daniel and Derek have finished with it.
