10% clear, 30% orange, 60% pink: this is not a young wine. Some fire on the nose. In the mouth long, luscious, nutty, with oranges. Still port. Guessed Croft 1955.

Decanted 6am on day of tasting - so 12-13 hours before drinking.

Level was mid-shoulder (quite hard to see on the photo, so indicated with red line), and some signs of seepage. Remains of pink wax capsule. Other bottles from the same batch are clearly marked. [Will upload a comparative photo for reference]

Cork crumbled, but remains of "BOA VISTA" visible.

Pale amber, 30%?
Very little fruit on the nose - leather, nutty.
Much better in the mouth - lots of spirit, no remaining tannin, long.
Quite nice still. Scored 4/7.

25% opacity, rich amber, copper. Lovely marmalade nose. Fabulously silky entry, delicate yet syrupy. Huge fruit, massive oranges, slightly extracted, marmalade. Very mature but retains great balance with good acidity. Lovely port.
