D75 Still red but starting to brown. Good fruits on both the nose and taste. Quite dry with a good solid length finish. Beautifully smooth and balanced, A very fine port from this vintage, and one that may have more time to go yet. I was going to open a tappit hen of this for NYE but may hold off for now as I think it has a bit more to give.
