My #2. Groups either #2 or #3 against the 1970, which was my #3. They were close. Very good balance but still enough grip to indicate that it has years to go. This one had sweet cherry fruit, but the sweet was not from the sweetness of the port. It was an independent sense of sweetness from the fruit. (94 pts.)

This was a little madeira-ish in the nose: not extractive, but with the beautiful warm wood tones, and with apricots. I found it slightly flat in the mouth, it was very soft and smooth and I think had a late touch of bitterness. Good port, not very good.
