Deep red colour, very slightly cloudy so the opacity was difficult to judge. Little showed on the nose but the port had a nice balance on entry with dry fruit that managed to be both flavoursome and floral. The lovely floral tones show well on the late palate and combine with delicious young red fruit salad. Rather lively aftertaste with black wine gums before a licorice root finish. Overall this port has a very fine late palate and a great finish but is disappointing on the nose. 88/100.
Top Ports in 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.
2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!
