Hidden Treasure

When I opened the fridge yesterday and picked out a bottle of oyster sauce, a small bottle showed up behind it. A forgotten 5 centliter bottle of the 1872 Ferreira port that we tasted a few weeks ago - Tasting Dinner with 12 Vintages of Bric dël Fiasc.
I often pour some leftover wine in these small bottles to savour on a rainy day, but this one I had forgotten about!
It was a tad dryer than on that night but still very much alive. Lots of character and a great length of flavours. It made a tuesday evening seem just a little brighter.
