RP91, decanted 13:00. Red, 70% opaque, so palest of the ≥1980 RPs. Nose horrible. Not tasted.

Decanted 6 hours. 60% opacity, cloudy red. Dirty stewey nose. Very little body or substance, balanced but thin. Faulty some way or other.

Light, 40-50% ruby. A good young nose, not too cloying but some fruit sweetness (light jam). Very jellyish with a bitter tip at the end, some faint, lingering dryness.

Slightly hazy appearance with lots of sediment in the bottom of the glass. Mature, sweet fruit nose with a lovely dusty bramble and later a streak of lemon juice. Rather hollow entry, quite lightweight on the palate with a little charcoal and bubblegum fruit. The late palate does develop some good fruit but this is not up to the quality of the 1985. A very uneven port. 86/100. Drunk 21-Oct-14. Decanted 8½ hours.
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
