Golden red in colour, 30% opaque. Slightly alcoholic on the nose, slightly smelly like coal tar. Soft on the palate with powerful acidity highlighting lovely toasted caramel essence and hazelnut paste; deliciously smooth with good complexity. A big dose of orange marmalade on the aftertaste leads to a lingering finish of great length. 88/100. Drunk 10-Nov-16. Decanted 5 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
