Ex-cellars. Deep red, dark and brooding; opaque at the centre. Lovely nose, rich and concentrated and still so youthful, with masses of blackcurrants. Smooth and silky entry with rich fruit like a dark fruit cake, with cherries and raisins and a dark chocolate. A lovely mouthful. A flavoursome aftertaste of sweet dark cherry, dark honey and dark chocolate. A very fine port with at least another couple of decades ahead of it. Delicious port. 93/100.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017

RP83. Dark dark red. Palate sweet, plum fruit. Big full and sweet. Lovely, really impressive wine in an often unimpressive year. Also too young.
