Mature port the colour of burnished copper with a wide transparent rim, 30% opaque. A warm nose of sweetened rhubarb, sharp but attractive. Sweet entry, smooth and fruity; the fruit is baked but attractive. Good complexity on the palate with a lovely spicy edge to the sloe dominated fruit. A tingling aftertaste with a warm length followed by a delicious dry finish full of dried and sour blackcurrant. Tasty, but did fade and thin in the glass over the course of the evening. Served blind this was guessed to be Quinta do Noval 1978. 88/100. 27-Oct-15. 11½ hour decant.
