Extraordinary amount of fruit on the nose and in the mouth. Wonderful toffee, syrupy flavour. Excellent.

Ex-cellars (5 of the remaining 19 bottles of library stock were brought by the Symingtons for this Masterclass). Deep orange in colour, deeper than the Warre 1960, 50% opaque. Lively mace and nutmeg on the very open and inviting nose. Sweet and gentle entry, full of gingerbread and caramelised orange. Big mid-palate, lively acidity. Delicious aftertaste, followed by a long and intense finish that even dries the cheeks slightly. An amazing port, that is in the perfect place for drinking. 95/100. Drunk 14 November 2010 after 6 hours decanting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
