Very sweet nose, dark as the pits of hell without the fires on. I wrote "Bloody Hell!" on tasting it. This was simply the most powerful of ports. Huge cherries and fabulous coffee notes on the finish. Far too many different flavours to pick and catch before something else took over. I had an inexplicable 'buttercups' pop into my head - don't ask. This still has many years, if not decades, left in it. A really quite spectacular wine but needs more time!
