Deep red, still appearing to be a young port despite the 18 years of age. Nosing gently of blackcurrants and blueberries and with a lovely smokey overtone. Fresh and sweet in the mouth, full of fruit and showing good structure without overwhelming the fruit; restrained and interesting complexity. Big aftertaste, full of dry blackcurrants and a big, chocolate aftertaste. Finally, a bottle which has come out of its recent closed phase and one which is simply delicious again. 92/100; drunk 7 December 2009 after 2 hours of decanting.
