S97. Drunk with dinner. Slightly closed, and weaker than the ’94.

Opaque; intense and deep red colour. Closed nose, some balckcurrants. Sweet fruit on the mouth, restrained and initially a little hollow. Then huge volumes of fruit with a very dry and powerful tannic core. Very dry finish. Less balance in this wine than to the 1994. 91/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
