Cá85, opened earlier in the day, re-closed, and decanted 16:00. Red-red-orange, 50% opaque. Nose a hint sour. Early palate very acidic, with red cherries behind the acidity. Long. Drinkable, but not much better than that. (Indeed, true of much of the first page.)

Mid-red, mature colour; 80% opaque. A slight hint of VA on the nose adding a gentle of layer of complexity to the sweet fruit. Smooth and gentle texture, mild and sweet fruit which develops pleasantly to give a balanced and rounded acidity on the mid-palate. A sweet and fragranced raspberry fruit with a good length. There is something disjointed and unsatisfying about this lightweight port. 81/100.
