Impenetrable and opaque; crimson / magenta right into the rim. Full and open on the nose with lots of blueberries, but with a unique twist of an herbal or coriander undertone. Very silky texture, restrained sweet fruit and black liquorice dominate the flavours. Tannins are firm but fair, giving a very fine port with impressive depth. Aftertaste starts with a quick burst of heat, but is very big and full of burnt toast and black cherries. This is a great port and one from the vintage to look out for. 92-94.
