Deep purple to red. Still quite young on the nose: good fruit and a little spice. Perhaps some flowers, or even mint. In the mouth, gentle fruit: red cherries. Some spice. Gently round tannins and moderate acidity. Reasonably long after-taste. Not the most interesting to drink today but will, no doubt, improve.

* A Note on Ratings
My rating system attempts to answer the question “is this a good Port?” one of three ways: N—No; P—Possibly; or C—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.
