30% opacity, warm red, amber rim. Red fruits on the nose, slightly dried, plus sweet honeycomb. Smooth entry, dryness - dried red fruits, slightly extracted. Lovely port.

Deep and rich red, quite intensely coloured; 80% opaque. The nose is surprisingly closed, slightly harsh with gentle sweetened rhubarb. Balanced on the palate, rich and peppery but also with masses of fruit - concentrated and complex. Rich and deep, fragrant and yet also sweet, spiced and backed with tannins. Fresh and fruity on the aftertaste, sweet and tasty with a long and lingering finish. Absolutely wonderful. 95/100. Decanted 5 hours.
