ok, but slightly flat compared to previously, whether due to bottle variation or age.

40% opacity, red, orange rim. Tobacco on the nose. Rich full mouthfeel, nice balance, a few mild tannins mid to late palate, long aftertaste. Mature fruits, dry finish. Got an honourable mention from me.

Ck63: red-brown, 35% opaque. Heat, grit and roughness, in a mature Port showing well.
