25% opacity, red with amber rim. Lovely syrupy chewy mouthfeel. Sweetness, strawberries. Lip-licking! I guessed Mz70.

Mature golden red colour, 30% opaque. Sweet and gentle fruit on the nose with the palate showing the same gentle, sweet fruit. Very light in texture but with a nice melange of mature fruit that has an elegant step to its progress across the tastebuds. Lingering and well pronounced on the finish, this is lovely port at the peak of maturity and drinking deliciously. 91/100. 09-Aug-17. Decanted 13 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
