This port took 5 days to open on the nose, but was worth the wait as this wine has floral and perfumed fruit leaping out of the glass. Deep and rich on the palate, silky in texture with gentle fruit with very pronounced tannis that are a touch bitter. Big waves of fruit keep rolling over the palate and the complexity is impressive. There is a slight hollowness on the aftertaste, but this is rapidly replaced with an enormous mouthful of fruit that dominates the finish. 91-93/100. This is really big and impressive port, with much promise for 20-30 years time. 5 July 2010.
