Re: Unknown

Unknown, bottled by a Dutch merchant from ’s-Hertogenbosch (perhaps my favourite-named Dutch town). Palate sweet and simple.

Re: 1948 Sandeman

S48, brick red, 40% opaque. Dry mature Port. Strawberry mid-palate, mid weight. Heat mid palate. Late palate a little cherry, but only little fruit remains. AHB remarked “cinnamon”. Lovely Port, slightly over-mature.

Mz48. Dark red, 60%. Big, tannic, super-dry. Large acidity, great balance. What mature Port is meant to be.
