Slightly cloudy; modest red in colour with a pale orange rim; 90% opaque. Nose showing signs of maturity, showing sweet fruit and mature mace. Sweet entry, with lively acidity playing across the tongue. Lots of fruit and very soft, dusty tannins - great balance and great levels of fruit. Sweet, jammy aftertaste, dry tannins and blueberry skins on the finish, although a little short. A port with plenty of life ahead of it. Guessed as being from the vintage 70, 74, 75, 83 and 85 and from the shippers Royal Oporto, Smith Woodhouse, Churchill, Sandeman and Quinta do Noval. 90/100. Drunk after 7-8 hours decanting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
