Red throughout; fading towards the edge. Concentrated jammy fruit on the nose, with some marzipan. In the mouth, the tannins are no obvious on first tasting unlike the younger QdNs, although they are still present. The sugar is well balanced, as is the acidity. The aftertaste is extremely long. Excellent quaffing Port: could easily drink a bottle.

(A Note on Ratings
My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: No; Possibly; or Certainly. Ports generally are rated against others of their category. Therefore, a Ruby Port which I rate as C for Certainly good, might not be as good as a Vintage Port which receives the same rating. I sometimes modify my rating with a plus or minus indicating that the Port is better or worse than might be expected for this category.)
