Distinctly red wine. Some rubber and varnish on the nose, but that blew off. Very reminiscent of the Graham 1970 I had at New Year, but with the good qualities (rich sweet poached red fruits and red liquorice) better displayed, and the difficulties (rubbery quality) very much less pronounced. This is very good port. I guessed Graham 1970, but easy because I had had it so recently.
35% opacity, clear rich red. Dark fruit and spice on the nose. Powerful, full mouthfeel, dark fruit, some pepper, gentle tannins, spice, heat in the finish. I guessed T66 on account of the pepper/spiciness.
