Bottled 1977. Ex cellars. Deep golden colour, 20% opaque. Burnt sugar on the nose, cut with tart pomegranite juice. Very sweet impact, with toffee and golden sultanas. A thick texture, but medium bodied in weight. Sweet, with lime and greena apple freshness. Toffee and caramel aftertaste, lots of mandarin but very sweet. Lovely port. 92/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
