1970 Delaforce

Pale orange rose colour, 20% opaque. A wonderful nose of spices and Christmas fruits. Delightful texture with rich and sweet fruit yet with life and acidic structure. Hints of licorice or aniseed on the late palate. Warm, slightly sticky aftertaste. Lovely candied cherry with Bertie Bassett black licorice finish. A real surprise and a fabulous bottle of port. 94/100. 05-Dec-17. Decanted 2 hours.
