S85. red-pink, and tasting hugely of perfume and bright cherry. Odd.

70% opaque, deep red with an orange tone. Some slight VA on the nose, but with plenty of fruit showing. Fruit forward and sweet in the mouth, with a baked tone to the fruit from the VA. The fruit is supported by good levels of acidity. Some heat shows on the aftertaste and the fruit on the finish is dominated by a dryness from the tannins. 85/100.
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
