Hi David,

I have had this port a couple of times and it is excellent. However, the storage conditions you describe are far from ideal as the cork might have dried out allowing air to enter the bottle and increase the rate at which the wine will have oxidated.

Bottles of this are available from reputable wine merchants, so probably very well stored, for around £150. Given hw yours has been stored I would estimate that you might get £50 for it.

I think you would be better drinking it :wink:
