Light burnished gold colour, 30% opaque. Delicate and attractive nose of soft, sweet rose perfume. A wonderful texture, thick and full of flavour. A big palate, full of sweet star fruit, cranberry flavoured syrup with lots of tobacco. Air makes the flavours explode on the palate. The aftertaste is big and full of fruit yet with the acidity needed to keep the balance and focus. And then the finish appears! Wow! Chocolate, dried cherry and still with that superb balance. There is a fabulous elegance all over this superb port. 96/100. 19-Dec-17. Decanted 5½ hours.
