From magnum. Deep red with an opaque centre. Beautiful perfumed nose, complex and interesting. This has a delightful balance on entry with sweet and lifted flavours that covers a range of soft black and soft red fruit. The tannins arrive late but are big and very burly. Once they arrive they don't go away! A tannic aftertaste resolves quickly to give way to a delicious finish of oak, tannins and great levels of fruit. 95/100. Drunk 27-Mar-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
