25% opacity, red-orange. Dried red fruit on the nose. Great balance, quite dry, mocha and dried red fruit.

Mature orange colour, 40% opaque. Delicate and flowery on the nose - like a dew laden summer morning. Poised entry, soft in the mouth at first but then grows in fruit and mouthfeel. Rose hips show on the aftertaste before a long, slightly harsh or bitter edge to the medium length finish. 87/100. Decanted 3½ hours.
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

N58. Pink-red, 30% opaque. Again, early-palate heat, and saccharine throughout. Also bubblegum appeared, like the N33.
