B7: An inky dense sweetly fruity nose. Quite a distinctively sweetly fruited lighter style. Balanced and attractive. Hints of liquorice over black fruit. More like a sweet wine than a port in some ways, but delicious in its way.

Complex and spicy, red fruit and plums. Not as tannic as others, might be one for early drinking, it's very enjoyable right now! V good.
(I have the rest of the bottle but haven't had the chance to try again yet, but as soon as I do I'll add further notes)

Further tasting this evening reveals a layer of acidity and some vanilla notes. Redcurrants more dominant in the fruit now. Might have been open a little longer than ideal now, but still very enjoyable drinking.
