Sadly, I think it may be too late. This was a late addition to the line up and most people had gone past the stage of being able to take photographs, clear or otherwise.

Deep red, still showing some purple in the colour - baby young. Purple fruit and blueberries on the nose. Strongly tannic attack, angular and acidic; appearing very closed. Dominated by the huge tannins but with decent levels of fruit behind the tannin. Dry and austere finish. Tight, closed and unattractive at the moment. Guessed to be Dow 2000. 87/100. No decanting time.

Chris D took the bottle away with him so he might still be able to take a picture, or one is available through Lay and Wheeler

Black. Very grapy on the nose. Very austere. Bitter tannins. More Dow than Dow; it will be interesting to see how this develops.

Very difficult to rate - tight and tannic, not much pleasure for current drinking purposes. A 2-minute decant probably not ideal for this port either!
