A half bottle acquired at auction but identified from the label as having been imported by James Nicholson of Crossgar. Deep garnet, very dark; 80% opaque. Powerful nose of dark cherry and black licorice. Huge entry, surprisingly dry but stuffed frull of fragrant black cherry. Lots of charcoal tannins on the mid-palate give a big mouthful of port. Lively and well balanced – and surprisingly youthful. A big, juicy aftertaste and a massive finish, full of flowers and black winegums. Very impressive port. 92/100. 08-Jul-17. Decanted 1 day.
