The first of three bottles purchased from WineOwners in November 2018.
Decanted at 1800 on evening before the tasting. Fours hours in decanter and then back into the bottle and Vac-U-Vined.
QA sample OK and not corked.

A dark garnet still. Pale rim. Nice dark cherry fruit. Lovely finish. Comfortably WOTN.

Good colour. Nose fairly open. Well developed palate, but with plenty of fruit still. My WOTN with 3pts.

T77, red, 40% opaque. Big; best; great structure; sweetness and grip. My highest scoring Port with 2½ points; six people, not wrongly, gave it 3.
