More floral than the Warre and Dow 2007s. Perhaps, though a bit simpler and understandable on the nose than the Warre (which had massive complexity of fruit). In the mouth, immediate sugar, followed by a lovely floral violet sensation. Perhaps a touch of strawberry too. Notably tannic (unlike the Warre). My favourite of the three 2007s.

Snapshot tasting note. Very fruity on the nose, with some alcohol showing. Lovely soft texture and gentle fruit impact. Lively acidity stabs the edges of the tongue. Tannic, but not unbalanced with lots of fruit showing late on the palate. A tingling aftertaste, dominated by sweet fruit. A delicious wine. 94/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
