Opaque and intense magenta, with the colour holding right into the rim. Faint and delicate on the nose with a little earthy blackcurrant fruit mixed with crushed nettle leaves. Sweet and jammy at first, but then the fruit and tannins appear with an enjoyable balance between these components, although the acidity is biting ”“ almost painfully. The aftertaste is of dark chocolate and licorice root and leaves the cheeks tingling. This port has a nice balance and considerable promise for the future. 91-93.
