N70, bottled by BBR, decanted 13:00. Dark red, 40% opaque. Palate soft, with both heat and mint. A good Port, showing unusually but well. Lighter than my ideal: third-equal, with Fonseca, behind Dow which trailed Graham.

Decanted 6 hours, 40% opacity, dark red-brown. Sweet nose. Smooth entry, heat mid palate, sweetness but lacking backbone.
