Burnished copper colour, 40% opaque. Pretty alcoholic on the nose, lots of fresh herbs and lively rose hips. Nice palate, rounded flavours and texture. An elegant, sweet fruity port that has a terrific balance to it and a delightful complexity and a wonderful feminine elegance. The delicate fragrance runs through to the aftertaste and the delightful finish. 94/100.
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!
