Mid-red, mature appearance; 40% opaque. The nose is desperately trying to be sweet and fruity but hints at being tainted with TCA. The TCA becomes clear on the musty palate. Not Rated. 19-Dec-17. Decanted 6½ 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!
