1977 Royal Oporto Quinta Do Corval

An informal pre-Christmas tasting of ports with the theme "A bottle of port which cost you less than £25", as suggested by winesecretary and organised (with plenty of help from others) by richn.

Intriguing. Plum and red berries with a medicinal note. Rather good.

Clearly with some age on it, a pale rim. Quite chunky tannins. Restrained plummy palate. Really quite attractive port.
