An odd ball of a port, sweet rubyish (or was that rubbish I wrote).

Spirity, lack of fruit and cheap.

A definite pass even at 10$.

lovely, refreshing port-fruit nose now that I've been smelling royals for a while. There is a distinct smell of apricots - dried, candied or stewed and not fresh -- in the nose. (Relative to other VPs, pretty mediocre nose.)

But it's all gone in the mouth. Harsh, vegetal taste, but which vegetable I couldn't put my finger on. I would not drink this again.
