From the 2017 Berry Brothers Port Walk.
Very dark red with hints of brick, 80% opaque. A wonderful nose full of sweet fruit — blackcurrants mainly. Sweet and fruity impact, initially jammy and lacking structure but the tannins and acidity correct this on the mid-palate. The mid and late palate have a nice fragrance with dry cocoa tannins supporting the rich and ripe fruit. The aftertaste is hot with the alcohol protruding, but this settles quickly to a chewy dark chocolate and sweet bramble finish of good length. 89/100. 23-Nov-17.
