20% opacity, brown red. Seaweed nose. Quick to heat with some caramel. Really dry finish and quite spiritous.

Copper red colour, 10% opaque. Slight soapiness to the nose along with some burnt fruit. A good thick texture, bringing sourness and bitterness to the tongue. The bitterness is soapy and not pleasant . Bitter finish. Surely not a representative bottle. Not rated. Decanted 8 hours.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

A light pink to light ochre core. This was corked to my nose and mouth.
