From the 2017 Berry Brothers Port Walk.

Deep ruby red in colour. Fresh raspberries on the nose; sweet but balanced entry with a dry core to the fruit yet with a nice ripeness to the edges of the palate. Plentiful dry tannins support a big mouthful of flavour and give a warming cedar-wood tone to the finish. This is pleasant drinking now but the wine shows considerable potential for the future. 89/100. 23-Nov-17.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
