Just a baby. Wound very tight, so much potential. Opened a decade or two early, unless your into that rip your face off Vintage Port in their youth style.

Rich fruit and plum skin flavors, walnuts and earth notes. Amazing range of flavor for a 50-year old wine. Really tasty!

Nice pale orange color, light salty nose, very elegant, a wine focused and precise, spicy character, dried citrus and floral notes - a nice aged vintage in magnum 😃 #PortWineDay #winelover

This has always been a stand-out wine, considering its modest price tag. Even though it was sexier and more extrovert when young, its mellowed maturity fits nicely too. Dried fig paste and aft spices lifts the finish.
