Marks & Spencer's own label. Light in colour, but still with plenty of red although a very clear centre. Mature nose , with lots of all spice and sweet fruit. Soft and gently fruity flavours in the mouth. Flavoursome and mature. A gentle and persistent aftertaste. Enjoyable port. 89/100. Drunk 26 August 2009.

Good red, though very translucent. Big acidity, and big sweetness.
