Bottled 2012. Brick red and quite dark, 70% opaque. Tawny nose, lively and promising to be full of acidity, A lovely entry, full of toast and cranberries with distinctly tawny characteristics. The sweetness is offset by lovely acidity. A warm glow on the aftertaste and a slight dryness to the finish. This is a delicious and powerful port with a good body and a good texture. Served blind this was guessed to be Noval 1978 colheita. 89/100.
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
