As the supplier said: either drink it young or drink it in 10 years or more. Today it was vibrant fruity: cherries and currants. Nice layered sweet and sour. A nose that keeps you busy

Young, fruity, sweet, nice freshness. Going to put a few in the cellar. They Will probably can outlive me. But opening a bootle once in a while for celebrations in going to be a party.

Vintage 2017 | Very very good, lovely expression of cherries confiture and great balance. Put in the cellar for grand children’s visits? Not a bad idea.

Vintage 1995 - I do not drink it often, but love older #vintageport This is a real treat with beautiful currants, figs. Even red fruit.

1963 Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port. Bday dinner at Tap. Perfect. Not too sweet, not too rich- balanced.

Still offering boatloads of forestfruit. Secondaries like damp earth, licorice, smoke, iodine and spicebox are starting to emerge.
So drinkable and enjoyable, yet heart-warming, cerebral and complex.

Only because I don't believe in 100 point scores. One of those wines that leaves you at a loss for words.
