An explosion of fruit both on the nose and in the mouth. This was extremely good and enjoyable.

Ex-cellars. Deep orange-red, 50% opaque. Very open nose, very inviting, full of mature raisins and rose hips. Sweet but spicy impact with high levels of acidity. Lots of secondary fruit - sweet and rich but with a balancing acidity. Chewy aftertaste and a fruit driven finish that is of good length. Drink or keep for years. 93/100. Drunk 14 November 2010 after 6 hours decanting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
