Notes: Amber in the centre, fading to light orange. A stack of fresh spearmint on the nose. No fresh fruit left in the mouth, but a glorious sense of marzipan and dried fruit like cherries. Very long aftertaste with caramel. Excellent Port to drink now.
Tasted at: Quinta do Noval Virtual Tasting with 67 Pall Mall
Date: 28th June 2020

(A Note on Ratings
My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: No; Possibly; or Certainly. Ports generally are rated against others of their category. Therefore, a Ruby Port which I rate as C for Certainly good, might not be as good as a Vintage Port which receives the same rating. I sometimes modify my rating with a plus or minus indicating that the Port is better or worse than might be expected for this category.)
