Unfiltered. From a half bottle. Deep red colour, solid centre and deep red rim. Smelling of sour cherry juice and strongly herbaceous. A dry entry, more sour cherries before a silky texture develops but there is always a strange and slightly unpleasant herbaceousness. After a time, the soft tannins show through and lead to an eventual mouthful of sweet fruit. There is an unfortunate burn on swallowing, but the aftertaste is soft, pleasant and of decent length. Not great port, but adequate drinking in an emergency. 85/100. Drunk 10 APril 2009.
