Magenta in colour, just short of transparent in the centre. Very dull on the nose, showing a little sweet cola. Medium bodied in the mouth, fruit to the fore and with strong tannins driving out the fruit from the mid-palate. Although the fruit outlasts the tannins, there is also a very strong core of acidity to this wine. The acidity comes through strongly on the aftertaste, which is low key but quite long and is dominated by Bramley apples. This port has all the components needed to be very impressive, but they are not well integrated. 86-88.
