Mature brick red, 70% opaque. Interesting nose, pronounced and enjoyable with concentrated redcurrant and a touch of harshness. Balanced entry, concentrated and full of mature sweet fruit. Some red fruit but with plenty of figs and honey sweetness; a touch perfumed. A lovley perfumed aftertaste and then a big dose of acidity that powers through the fruit flavours. Slightly dry finish with dry fruit cherriness but an odd sickly sweetness. Good, but not great. 90/100.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

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

G45. Dark red, 50% opaque. Nose of red fruit. Early palate very saccharine sweetness, then smooth, some heat. Ending very soft and lovely.
