• Optionally ‘For’ Somebody: some bottles were specified as being ‘For’ somebody, that somebody being expected to guess why.

Deep garnet red, just opaque at the centre. Showing little on the nose at first, a swirl releases some soft fruit. A lively fruity and balanced entry; lots of mature fruit dominates the mid-palate with an excellent balance. This port is full of fruit at all stages, including the finish. A delicious and balanced fine port. Served blind this was guessed to be Warre 1979 LBV. 90/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
