Light in the middle, getting paler to the edge where it was devoid of any colour. Quite a lot of heat on the nose. In the mouth, sweet mellow roses which lingers in the mouth. Perhaps a little faded. Not quite as complex or elegant as it may have been.

Mid orange colour, faint tinge of green on the rim. Faint nose, showing very mild rubber-bands, but with strawberries and rose hip syrup. Very thick and sweet in the mouth , flavoursome and rich. Spicy and with a grapefruit peel bitterness. Warm aftertaste, followed by a long and intense finish of lemon grass and grapefruit peel. 86/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
