What did you think of this wine? I have generally really liked these but I've not had the 2012.

From Ramos Pinto. Deep red, opaque. Rich and full on the nose with ripe but balanced fruit and a lovely fragrance. The richness and perfumed qualities carry into the palate, where it also shows gentle tannins. This is a sweetly fruity wine with a lingering finish. Overall a little lacking in acidity to merit a top score, but a very enjoyable and easy to drink glass of wine. 86/100, which is where I scored the 1995 vintage when I had that last year.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
