Deep red and opaque, with a small rim. An inviting fruity nose, delicate and grapey. A lovely relaxed entry, with lots of fruit and gentle tannins. Nicely balanced and elegant and a great presence. A nice chewy finish with lots of fruit. Big on the aftertaste, lively and full of chocolate. This is a lovely port with a lot of potential. Served blind this was guessed to be Warre 2003 LBV. 91/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
