Cr60. Glorious red, 45% opaque. Very soft but still full-bodied. Wonderful. Big red-cherries Port, with some heat mid-palate.

Mid-red colour, brick red in tone; 60% opaque. Slightly spirity with a toffee and rose petal nose. Lovely caramel and biscuit entry but a wave of fierce spirit on the mid-palate that takes a long time to mellow to a modest mouthful of pepper. Spicy and fiery aftertaste leaving a warm glow around the lingering red licorice finish. This is a perfect fireside port. 87/100. Decanted 14 hours
