Showing evolution in the colour, very pink on the rim. Quite closed on the nose but with a lovely lavender and green capiscum note. Pleasantly fruity in the mouth, mature and spicy. The bake is well integrated and gives a depth to the wine that might otherwise be missing. The aftertaste is complex and long. This is a port that seems to be continuing to improve with the bake characteristics becoming more integrated over the years. Delicious. 88/100. Tasted 30/10/08 after 90 minutes decanting.
