40% opacity, red, amber rim. Lovely smooth entry, great balance and structure - silky. Chewy port. Dryness in the finish. Dried fruit flavours - cherries, cranberries. Liked this.

Deep bronzed red. Delicious nose of rhubarb and cranberry. Wonderful and smooth on entry, bringing delicious slightly jellied fruit flavours. The fruit grows dramatically on the palate, joyous and lively with the ghosts of tannins past still drifting around in the mouth. Great balance. The aftertaste is huge and aromatic and slightly peppery and leads straight into a great finish of pepper and cranberry. This is a very fine bottle of port. 92/100. Decanted 6 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
