1987 Delaforce Quinta da Corte

Short decant perfectly sufficient (2hr+). Fully mature, but still plenty of fruit, about 50% opaque. Soft, full of brambles, red cherries and blackberries with gentle sour acidity cutting across, with hint of lemon. Quite short on the finish, but very smooth and enjoyable.

Second half at D+24hr.
Has not lasted well, now slightly spicy, candy-sweet, but quite hollow and short and not well balanced. Definitely much, much better on the first evening after short decant.
