Lighter than most from the vintage, clearly red and with no violet in the spectrum; transparent centre. Very little to pick up on the nose, very lightly scented. Incredibly smooth and seductive texture, very soft. The fruit is restrained and elegant redcurrant around a soft and gentle tannic core. Lovely aftertaste and huge finish that lasts for minutes. A fabulous port for those who like an elegant and restrained style, quite unlike most of the ports from the vintage. One which is very easy to drink now and will hold well for 20+ years. 90-92.
