JDAW’s other brother-in-law wanted to attend a tasting, so an emergency was declared, and held on Monday 8th February 2016 at the Boot & Flogger.

25% opacity, slightly cloudy, brown, red-orange. Nice mouthfeel, gentle heat mid to late palate. Syrupy, slight acidity with faint bitterness on the aftertaste - bitter orange peel.

English bottled. Burnished copper colour with a pink-orange rim; 40% opaque. A touch sour on the nose, but pleasantly so and with good fruit - violets and plums. Delicious and plummy fruit wrapped in a very fiery bundle - hot and very lively! Thin in texture, acidic and quite aggressive but very flavoursome. Very hot on the aftertaste with some searing acidity causing the mouth to water vigorously. Long and bitter finish with generous doses of bitter marmalade. 87/100. 08-Feb-16. Decanted 13 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Mz63 Softer than the Cr63 and S63 on the night, but still a fine example of a mature port from a great year. Nice fruits with a hot finish.
90 points

Mz63. Pink-red, 30 % opaque. Nose spirity. Palate too. Early palate gentle, mid and late palates soft with boiled sweets. Spirit grew more prominent over time.
