AHB was in London. The natural consequences followed.

Mature red colour, brick in tone; 40% opaque. Rather odd and dusty on the nose with mature fruit that is surprisingly tropical with ripe mango and pineapple. A swirl releases rose hip and fresh, sweet redcurrant. Silky smooth entry with sweet and luscious fruit - very sweet - with dusty icing sugar in the palate. Dusty tannnins are almost fully resolved and the palate slowly focuses to become strawberry chews. A lovely palate, balanced and flavoursome. The aftertaste is delicious and full of strawberries; the strawberries persist throughout the long finish. This is really lovely, if slightly sticky. Served blind that was guessed to be Martinez 1967. 88/100. Drunk 19-Apr-17. Decanted 6 hours.
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!
