V08 100% opacity. Not as big on the fruits as the 07 or younger ports. More tannins and leathers showing
90 Points

Deep red, medium rim. Fragrant nose that is fruity and very full. Youthful entry that comes across as aggressive; light on fruit at first with powerful and gripping tannins. Fruity finish, long and full of chewy, tannic blackcurrant. 90/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
