Deep red with an opaque centre. Muted fruit on the nose, none of the deep concentrated blackcurrant seen on some of the ports from this vintage. Medium weight entry; gripping tannins with clean fruit — more elegance and refinement than the other SFE ports from the vintage. Gentle grip on the aftertaste and a lingering dark damson finish. This is certainly a port made in the vein of the elegant style of Cockburn from yester-year and will mature beautifully as a result. 87-89.
Tasted 12 September 2018.
