Modest orange-red colour, 50% opaque. Fresh fruit on the nose, lively and quite young. Thick in texture, beautifully poised and elegant; intense on the palate with multiple latyers giving good complexity. A stunning palate delivers a lingering jelly bean aftertaste and a long finish. This is a stunning bottle of port. Served blind, was guessed to be Taylor 1970. 95/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
