Mid-red, mature appearance; 40% opaque. The nose is desperately trying to be sweet and fruity but hints at being tainted with TCA. The TCA becomes clear on the musty palate. Not Rated. 19-Dec-17. Decanted 6½ 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
