30% opacity, ruby red with a copper rim. Dusty strawberries on the nose. Gentle heat all along the palate, dusty strawberries again with some bitter mocha in the finish. Lip licking great port.

20% opacity, amber. Super sweetness on the nose. Smooth, syrupy, very gentle acidity. Pineapple and grapefruit in there as well! Much more evolved than the others on the table.
70% opacity, dark red. Sweet, tannins still very present, lots of dark fruit and spices. Very different from the others on show. Plenty of fruit in there, but seems to lack acidity to give it backbone, which makes it strange that it has lasted this long.
30% opacity mature red, amber rim. Took a while for the nose to develop, then it was complex and fruity. Smooth, heat mid to late palate, gentle acidity. Sweetness, lovely oranges, thick and syrupy.
30% opacity, mature red-brown, yellow rim. Caramels and very subtle tones of orange on the nose. Fine bodied, gentle heat mid to late palate, really gentle acidity - makes the tongue tingle! Oranges come through late on the palate then linger long in the aftertaste. Very fine stuff!

Another great evening in good company and with wonderful port! Many thanks to Alex for getting us organised and together with Simon getting prepped on the day. Also thanks to Tom for providing various adoptions. It was also very good to meet James M for the first time. Thank you James, for giving us...
