Old coffee, cold coffee - the colour is discouraging.
The nose, however, is alive. Spiced blueberries, heather, underbursh and bramble.
I cannot fathom this being 82 years old. Layered, fresh and confit fruit - brambles, blueberries, blackcurrant and a touch of plum. Unbelievable with the cheese - they play off each other - fireworks. It brings the weight and the structure of the wine and tones down the heat a bit. Such a marriage of cheese and port I've never enjoyed so much. Divine.
