S67. Pink-red, 30% opaque. Faint nose. palate of artificial sweeetner. Heat, almost strawberry — a candy fake strawberry? — light at end, but still long.

40% opacity, red, amber rim. Lovely smooth entry, great balance and structure - silky. Chewy port. Dryness in the finish. Dried fruit flavours - cherries, cranberries. Liked this.

Deep bronzed red. Delicious nose of rhubarb and cranberry. Wonderful and smooth on entry, bringing delicious slightly jellied fruit flavours. The fruit grows dramatically on the palate, joyous and lively with the ghosts of tannins past still drifting around in the mouth. Great balance. The aftertaste is huge and aromatic and slightly peppery and leads straight into a great finish of pepper and cranberry. This is a very fine bottle of port. 92/100. 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!
