Notes: Just edging away from opaque in the centre, but still dark purple fading to red. Very similar nose to the 2003 with concentrated red fruits. Again, a lot of tannins which are immediately present in the mouth followed by incredible concentration of fruit. The acidity is balanced. The concentration of fruit and tannins make it seem a little less expressive than the 2003 for drinking now. Needs more time.
Tasted at: Quinta do Noval Virtual Tasting with 67 Pall Mall

(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.)
