Deep red with a wide rim. Fruity nose with sweet raspberries and vanilla ice-cream showing initially on the palate; lots of fruit and firm tannins before a great chewy finish of fine length. My preferred reserve ruby from the TFP portfolio. 87/100. 04-May-16
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
