Deep in colour, opaque and with a violet rim ”“ interestingly there was no violet in the colour when the bottle was first opened and this developed over the next few days. Soft and gentle on the nose with black cherries the dominant scent. Initially a bit hollow in the mouth, but this quickly fills out with powerful fruit and tannins that support but are never allowed to dominate. There is a big dose of acidity in this port, but not as much as in some which reach painful levels. A tannin dominated aftertaste and a long and mouthfilling length ”“ one of the bigger aftertastes from the barrel samples tasted. Quite a delicious port and one worth hunting out. 93-95.
