Magenta in colour with the barest hint of purple. Lovely nose of floral perfumes and blackcurrants; very attractive. Gentle on the tongue, bringing pure but acidic blackcurrant. Most of the structure and focus comes from the acidity with little tannin showing in the wine. Perhaps a little straightforward in its flavour profile. The length is good, with chocolate and fruit flavours lasting quite a long time. One of the least sweet of the ports from the vintage. 88-90.
