Light rose in colour, 30% opaque. Slightly odd on the nose, a touch dusty but this opens to give an attractive, sweet fruitiness. Very sweet entry, with a thick and syrupy texture. Spices all over the palate, which is full of nutmeg and sweet fresh figs. Long finish of soft raspberry jelly that also brings a spicy tingle. A delightful port, full of elegance. Really tasty, with a perfect balance of fruit and structure. 4 hours decant. Drunk 27 October 2011. 92/100.
This was the wine of the night (by 1 point) and was my wine of the night.
