S77. Brick red, 60% opaque. Smoke on nose. To taste some heat, strawberry, mid weight. Lovely port.

Mature red, elegant with an edge of brown. Gently perfumed on the nose, with delightful cinnamon and spiced plums. Soft and gentle on entry, with a delicious sweetness of bruised plums and gentle cinnamon. Soft and gentle flavours and structure - very tasty and elegant, making this a lovely port. 92/100.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.
