Decanter #4: a glorious red like #8, the OBV. Nosing oddly of coffee, and tasting even more strongly of coffee. I knew this was not Fonseca as the F-plan 1980 lacked the Fonseca signatures, but that left me entirely unsure what this was.

A clear red, attmepting but failing to be a dark red, with a transparent centre. Fresh parsley on the nose but a swirl brings sweet redcurrant fruit. Very sweet in the mouth, lovely and soft. Wonderful mid-flavours with so much fruit coming through on the tongue. Very long aftertaste that coats the tongue so beautifully. This port is probably now at the start of its plateau of maturity. A super port. 8/9 or 93/100.
