20% opacity, red brown, amber rim. Lovely sweet smooth entry, citrus. I guessed GM67. When Charles revealed that CPR I was the same port from a magnum, I was pleased that I at least managed to guess the same wine for that, even if it was the wrong wine!

From magnum with this bottle having been stored at room temperature once decanted. Pale rose colour, very light at 20% opacity. Soft jelly fruit on the nose, mature and delicious with lovely sweet floral components and an odd slight hint of petrol. Mature on the palate, lacking a little fruit but with plenty of acidity. Fragrant and a little delicate with lots of rose water. Surprisingly fiery aftertaste and a great finish of good length, full of red licorice and black chocolate. Served blind this was guessed to be Taylor 1975. 89/100. 09-Aug-17. Decanted 12 hours.
