Cr91. Dark red, 70% opaque. I like. Big, structure, fruit (plums), dry mid palate. Proper Port properly declared.

Dark red, 60% opaque. Amazing fruity nose, more like an unfortified Californian cabernet than a port. Richly fruited in the mouth. Splendid stuff for drinking now and over the next decade or so. WOTN, and one that 10 of the 14 attendees gave points to.

Medium/deep colour; lots of primary red fruit on the nose; still plenty of tannin and good overall balance.
Liked this a lot; very good.

I find myself against trend here. I see the immediate appeal of this fresh young thing. And somewhat like the 94 it has amazingly held on to its youth. But I found some VA a distraction and ultimately for me the profile a bit simple. Doesn't fall off midway like the 94. I don't vote based on a port's future hence potential not included in my voting but I certainly wouldn't bet against it.
