40% opacity, red. Christmas cake on the nose. Lovely rich mouthfeel, christmas cake. I guessed W70.

Mature in appearance with a wide rose rim; 60% opaque but full of fine sediment. Delicious redcurrants on the nose, mature and sweet. Rounded and sweet on the palate with lots of sweet fruit but lacking a little acidity so feeling a touch flabby. Very sweet on the late palate, with lots of parma violets which appear on and dominate the aftertaste. The violet fruit flavours show all over the finish. Served blind this was guessed to be Vargllas 1987. 90/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
