red colour, slightly watery rim, for a 20 year port already quite pale, strange sweetish smell, a bit thin, alcoholic finish. Not a very complex wine, a bit bland

Mid red colour, firm on the rim; 60% opaque. Grapefruit on the nose, and sharp balckberries. Soft immediate impression on the palate, thena sharp acidity which fades back to reveal soft coffee and raspberry; air on the palate releases more coffee. Fruity aftertaste and a long, sticky finish. 85/100.
