Cork extracted in a single piece; decanted off some fine sediment. Deep red colour; opaque. Nosing very strongly of blackcurrants when decanted, less strongly now, but still distinctive. Nice texture on entry, followed by pronounced acidity and lots of sweet fruit; gentle tannins. Air brings more blackcurrants and gobs of fruit. Big aftertaste, huge finish dominated by purple berries. A very surprising port - great flavour and full bodied. A good one to follow in the future. 91/100.

Very good port that was purchased from BBR's outlet store in Basingstoke for £25. Excellent QPR.
