W27. Glorious red, 40% opaque. rich, very dry mid-palate, with caramel especially at the end. Quite meaty. Excellent Port, but that lunch bettered by Fonseca, Taylor, Martinez and Constantino.

Bottled by J Lovibond of Greenwich. A lovely mature reddish-brown colour, 70% opaque. A delicious nose of spiced black cherry; warm, rich and spicy, full of ground pepper and snuff. Wow! A brilliant nose, much brighter and sharper than the Taylor, the Taylor being much sweeter smelling. A balanced palate, rather drier than the Taylor but with great complexity and freshness. Some dryness on the palate, but this is adequately compensated for by the complexity coming from the nutmeg, mace and cloves. A dry finish, combining lovely sour cherry and bitters. Wonderfully fragrant, albeit dry. Lingering licorice root stays in the mouth for quite a while. Long and fragrant, lovely port. 94/100.

Full, dark; a touch dry mid-palate, lovely flavour, some dry tabacco, slight acidity on aftertaste. A good port, but overshadowed by its company. Also a wine which had been on my "unicorn list" (wines I would love to try, but thought I might never get the chance to), so very pleased to have had the opportunity.
