BN67. Red-brown, 30% opaque. Palate light, perfectly balanced, with strawberries. Later very perfumed on nose and palate. Lighter than my ideal style of Port, but good well-made Port in that style.

Light and pale in colour, a light and ruddy rose; 10% opaque. "Pale" on the nose, light but with a bit of fruit. Delicate rose-water and light syrup on entry with icing sugar on the mid-palate; dusty but fragrant. Rose-water dominates the aftertaste and is followed by a big and totally unexpected blossom of flavour on the finish, Unfortunately this is overly sweet and lacks balance, delivering a flabby and unfocused wine. 84/100. Decanted 13 hours.
