Pale rose red; 30% opaque. Nothing on the nose. Light entry bringing very faint TCA on the palate that flattens the fruit flavours struggling to come through. Not Rated. 19-Dec-17. Decanted 6½ hours.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)

30% opacity, warm red, very sloightly cloudy. Dusty nose, very mild TCA. Smooth entry, very muted red fruits. TCA, but still drinkable for me.
