Bottled 2007. Light red colour, clear and glowing. Colheita nose. Sweet in the mouth, very full and flavoursome; richa and tasty. Full of dried citrus fruit. Slightly subdued immediate aftertaste, long in length. A really impressive wine. 92/100. 17 Dec 2009.

This was an unexpectedly good Port.I'd bought it from Laithwaites as a snap purchase as it sounded a good idea then immediately regretted it until we drank it. Lots of citrus but a really multi-layered Port and may even have got Julian to appreciate an Andreson.
Port is basically a red drink
Following KillerB’s mis-spelt optimism I shall quote precisely from my handwritten Notes. ‟Orange”. ‟Acidic. Marzipan. Way too old. Doesn’t do it for me. Colheita.”
