Deep red in colour with a touch of bricking, opaque centre. Soft red fruit on the nose, sweet and ripe. Modest fruit on entry with generous tannins and pleasing acidity. Soft and straightforward but well balanced, leading to a dry cherry stone aftertaste and finish. 90/100. Drunk 26-Sep-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
