Pale in colour, light centre and a pale pink rim. Warm nose of cherry jam with a meaty / leathery overtone. Medium bodied; light and pleasant fruit and with a generous dose of tannins supporting a lovely sweet and spiced fruitiness. Very attractive and elegant aftertaste that is really worth working the cheeks to enjoy. Drink now or in the (near) future. 90/100. Drunk 28 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
