GC77 (‘JDAW}, though brought by RAYC). Very dark red, 90% opaque. Generally proclaimed to be corked. Consistent with the very fast fading of the dark fruits present early-palate.

Deep red in colour and opaque. Slightly corked on the nose. Some concentrated sweet fruit makes a brief appearance on the palate before the TCA dominates the mid and late palate. This still retains a deep and concentrated finish. Not rated. 6 hour decant.
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.

Yet another corked GC77. A pity, and such a lovely port underneath...
