Oporto bottled in dark brown glass. An attractive mature red colour with a light rose rim, 30% opaque. Gentle on the nose, bringing sweet aniseed and slightly bitter hawthorn fruit. The two combine to give a lovely bitter-sweet bouquet. Very smooth entry with a delicious balance that merges plenty of bitter damsons over sweet underlying fruit. Light and spritely with plenty of flavour and soft tannins. Rather dry on the aftertaste with a long damson skin finish. This is good port and my wine of the night. Served blind this was guessed to be Warre 1970. 91/100. Decanted 6½ hours. Drunk 28 September 2017.
