25% opacity, wonderful red-Amber with a copper rim. Nose of menthol and mint. Lovely gentle smooth entry, some heat mid palate which lingers into the finish. Some bite with the heat, and some faint hints of dried orange peel. At 56 years young, still retaining a fabulous structure. Wonderfully elegant. My WOTN.

UK bottled by an unknown bottler. Mature red in colour, lots of brick; 40% opaque. A gentle nose with lots of fruit that is attractive and interesting. Soft on the palate with mature fruit and a hint of rosemary. Big on the palate with firm tannins and good complexity. Dry on the finish with a bit more rosemary showing and tannins on the tongue before a sticky finish of candied fruits. 86/100.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.
