Dark red. Lovely soft nose - good weight - red fruits, good tannin.

My guess was TV86.

Note that the wine was Cavadinha 1992.

Pale red, 50% opaque and with a light rose rim. Sweet on the nose (described by RAYC as violets) but with a mild menthol and sweet floral perfume. Light bodied, delicate but very spicy—full of curry powder, Mild flavours, slightly aggressive with a tobacco bite. Short aftertaste with a bitter redcurrant finish. 83/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

My notes indicate that it was the 1992 vintage. I have never tasted the 1982 vintage, nor have I ever seen DRT with half bottles of Warre Cavadinha 1982.
