Mature red colour, 90% opaque. Gently fruity nose, a little muted. Slightly harsh entry with muddy fruit and a rather sharp mid-palate. The volume on the palate grows well but the alcohol shows strongly on the harsh aftertaste. Not a pleasant port. Sourced from Tesco. 75/100. Drunk 18-Nov-15. Pop 'n' pour.
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
