S67, glorious red. To taste dark strawberry, medium-heavy, ending short and light.

Later Jacob H. rightly observed a hint of mint.

70% opaque, deep red in colour. Elegant nose, a good combination of lemon grass and sweet - even over-ripe - strawberry. Sweet but oddly lacking fruit on the impact on the palate. The fruit develops to give a sweet redcurrant jelly with a soft, dry tannic undertone. Elegant and restrained. Tasty, mature fruit aftertaste that fills the mouth and leads to a long, sticky, fruit driven finish. 89/100.
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
