N67. Pink-red, 40% opaque. Nose of maraschino cherries, which over the evening I realised is a hallmark of this year. Bigger than the NN67, richer, much more fruit: sweet and full, but soem dryness late palate. Big, long, and lovely. It and Croft Roêda the only two with any chance of improvement.

N67
Eye: ruby red, clear, glycerine
Nose: aromatic, complex and very elegant, no alcohol
Mouth: medium/full body, smooth acidity, medium round tannins, very balanced and elegant, medium long finish
(in the start of the tasting bit closed... but after 1-2 hours it came out in a great way)
Score: 92, on it's peak now ...

45% opacity, dark red. Couldn't pick up much on the nose. Smooth, rich, round mouthfeel. Good freshness and balance, ripe plums with some spicy hints. Nice port!
