Rather subdued on the nose, offering violets and stewed back fruit. Silky texture, with a good body and plenty of flavour. Tannins are soft and subdued and this port has less brutality than some of the vintage. Full of fruit all over the palate. Big, fruit dominated aftertaste with plenty of blackcurrant skins on the finish. 88-90. Very much an elegant style from the vintage - and drinking beautifully right now! 5 July 2010.
