A lovely mature brick-red colour; 95% opaque. Delicious on the nose, smelling of slightly caramelised cranberries. Balanced and delicate entry, bringing a mid-palate that is full of red licorice and smokey fruit. A strong dose of acidity and aniseed and some chocolate tannins still trying to lurk in the background. An interesting sweet / bitter aftertaste of cranberries leads to a long finish of aniseed balls and black licorice. Nice port, still quite youthful and surprisingly robust. Not in a hurry to be drunk. 89/100. 01-Jul-17. Decanted 4 hours.
