Beautiful: elegant and well balanced. One of those wines that is hard to describe because it was simply the archetype of good mature vintage port. Perhaps it might even improve with a little more time, just to take off the final touches of immaturity.
My WOTN. I've learned in my tastings that a complete, round, resolved, and balanced port is fairly rare to my pallate. This had it all, and also showed signs it could continue to develop for 5+ years. Perhaps just a tad lacking in fruit and complexity, but in general I thought this was a very classy effort. Some heat throughout, but not harsh, just a bit forceful. 92 pts
