Deep red with a dark rim, 90% opaque. Little showing on the nose - but perhaps the ghost of TCA? Smooth texture on the palate but then a wave of TCA turns everything mouldy. Shame. Not Rated. 19-Dec-17. Decanted 5½ 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
