Another half from a case purchased on release since the previous half was so good. This is just as good - deep, powerful fruit wrapped around a superbly balanced black chocolate core. This will be a really enjoyable Port, but I need to resist them to find out exactly how good! 91/100. Drunk 17-Apr-22 2022. Decanted 1 hour.
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.
