Really smooth, almost no heat, syrupy fruit - strawberries which have been stewed. Really jammy mouthfeel.
Later, losing a bit of structure, and more syrupy.

Deep rosy-pink, 50% opaque. Gentle nose of spiced cherries, soft but attractive. Fruit on the palate, sweet maraschino cherry with nutmeg giving a lively pepperiness. The pepperiness follows through onto the aftertaste; the sweet fruit lacks a shade of acidity to keep the port in focus and balance. 88
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
