Chocolate and digestive biscuits on the nose; with a scent of deep molasses that was extremely attractive. In the mouth, perhaps a touch lighter: light cherries, apples and pears were most notable, along with a dense and tannic mouth-feel. Obviously excellent. I really enjoyed this.

Ex-cellars. Deep in colour, 95% opaque. Raspberries all over the nose, which is surprisingly open. Sweet entry, with a pleasant woody tone to the concentrated raspberry and vanilla. Tannins are modest and soft; the acidity is balanced and frames the fruit perfectly. The aftertaste is gentle and restrained and leads to a delicious finish, full of milk chocolate and raisins. Superb port, which needs to be resisted for another 10-20 years before it will really be on song. Potentially a 95 point port perhaps. 92/100. Drunk 14 November 2010 after 6 hours of decanting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
