Light centre, soft pink rim; 40% opaque. Mature on the nose with redcurrant jelly dominating. Dry in the mouth, but quite big. Tannins are soft, flavours are full and rich. Good body - a big port with a big aftertaste and a very, very long finish. Extremely pleasant drinking. Guessed to be Dow 1970. 91/100.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

Red but lightening. Plummy on the nose. Slightly fruity in the mouth. Nice but not great.
