Dark and slightly cloudy. Some bottle stink which blew off quickly in the glass. Nice weight, cherry and bitter chocolate and a little hot.

Medium in colour, with a clear rim and a light centre. Very distinctive on the nose - full of sweet cherries and cloves and with a touch of chocolate. Sweet in the mouth; mildly fruity but with a good structure. Still a touch of tannin and lots of supporting acidity. Plenty of mid-palate complexity. Slightly hot on the on swallowing, but leads into a long and gentle aftertaste. A very enjoyable port. 90/100. Drunk 26 August 2009.

Red and 70% translucent. Quite light, red fruit resembling strawberry, with sharp heat on the back of the tongue.
