G66, decanted 16:15. Red-pink, 35% opaque. This was strange. at about 5pm I’d tasted from a small glass of sediment-rich residue. That had been fantastic: large red-fruited perfectly soft mature Port. But at table, in my first glass, and in a substitute, it had maraschino cherries, saccharine sweetness, heat, great length, but a lack of loveliness / depth / complexity. They were different Ports. Hmm.
