1970 Dow: at D+4h. Brick-red a perfect colour. Nose of red fruits, maybe cherry, no strong sugar. Mid-palate heat. Lovely, rounded mouth-filling red fruit, including grape. Very long. Soft mature port. 10/9. Baumé 3.4°.

Also note the layout of the Symingtons’ placemats, which was partly responsible for inspiring the new /Gaia layout in the placemat software.
