A nose that brought lively menthol with some sweet fruit. Gentle texture with strong acidity and good fruit. The tannins are pronounced, but balanced. The palate showed lovely chocolate tones. There is a slight acid burn on swallowing, followed by a milk chocolate finish of modest intensity and decent length. 84-86/100. Nice port, but not great and one which faded over the course of 4 days, which causes me some concerns for the life of this port in the cellar. 5 July 2010.
