Very true. I'm sure it is difficult to get a true impression of a VP from freshly bottled juice, so I have no doubt that things can change over that first year in bottle. It may not have been the original reason for delaying declaration for 18-30 months, but I'm sure it proves useful now that it is required standard practice.
Anything to do with Port.
