MG85, decanted 15:00. Re-red-brown, 50% opaque. Nose, and indeed palate, very strongly of pineapple. Palate light. Slightly acidic mid-palate. Not long. Interesting, drinkable, but not much better than that.
MG85 Quality checked while setting up and got stong mint, but later on at the tasting I thought it had a very strange taste. Many convinced it was ok, but quite a few agreeing with me that it was not right. JDAW rightly expressed strong pinapple taste. I think it was flawed but many thought it okay. Not what I am looking for in a port... unscored.

Dark rose red, with a brown tone; 70% opaque. A sharp nose, sour plums or greengage; very fresh. Sour fruit entry, lightweight and unbalanced - perhaps showing early signs of oxidation. The sharpness running through the aftertaste and finish. Very green on the finish. 80/100.
30% opacity, dark toffee brown. Nose has an acid sharpness with a faint hint of toffee behind that. In the mouth, watery sugar, or is it sugary water? Possibly oxidised, drinkable, but not enjoyable.
