Notes say 'That's Good'. Very well-balanced, nice berry fruits, smooth mouth, good structure. All-round lovely Port that has not closed down yet, I'll be interested if it ever does. May go the way of 1994 (not over yet) and 1977 and drink young - wait and see.
Port is basically a red drink

Flight no. 9, served alongside Guimaraens 2005.

Surprisingly fresh on the nose (given the hot vintage). Massive port, that really needs time to come together. I found little pleasure in drinking it now, but expect it will do great in 20+ years time. Points based on potential: 93+.
