Mature orange/red colour, 20% opaque. Hollow nose with nothing showing. A nice texture, light and gentle flavours on the palate with some good development on the mid-palate, but always light and gentle. Some acidity on the aftertaste and a little heat on the good length finish, which is otherwise full of gentle fruit. Pleasant port, but not in the same class as most ports at this tasting. 85/100. Drunk 19-Dec-17. Decanted 6 hours.

20% opacity, red-brown with a yellow rim. Rich, sweet nose, ripe strawberries. Smooth and sweet, ripe strawberries, lots of sugary sweetness. Maybe losing some backbone.
