TV67. Bright red, 40% opaque. No fruit, but sweeter than the BBR bottling, and very candied. Also dry late palate.

TV67 - Oporto, 1970
Eye: ruby red, clear and brillant
Nose: complex nose, alcohol
Mouth: medium body, smooth acidity, medium round tannins, very elegant and good balance, medium long finish
Score: 92+, liked this more than the BBR ... Very nice example of the vintage 1967

30% opacity, warm red, orange rim. Just slightly more red in colour than the BBR bottling alongside. Nose of dried red fruits. Gentle heat along the palate. Dried fruit - cranberries.

Only slightly preferred versus the BBR bottling. Just a smidgen more fruit and liveliness.
