Was planning to go to the cricket at the Oval that evening. Might reconsider…
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

It seems that a reserve list won’t be needed.

Decision made. With others, or home alone, time to retest these notes of 6⅓ years prior:
jdaw1 wrote: 14:01 Sun 31 Jan 2016GM86, decanted 2pm. Dark red, 70% opaque. Lots of blackberry fruit, big sweetness, and a hint of black pepper. Lovely juice, not yet in perfect balance: this will reward those who can wait another half decade.

Bigger than the GM86, slightly higher-toned (mint? eucalyptus?), but like its slightly older brother, needing another decade to soften the fruit and tune the balance. A very well made Port that should have been declared.

Won’t be able to make this I’m afraid. Need to get away promptly on Wednesday and so will likely be working late tomorrow.
