Deep- to mid-red in colour. Gently attractive of the nose, full of tart lime but with a hint of VA. Soft entry, but with a harsh edge on the palate and plenty of tannins drying the cheeks. Blueberry dominated fruit, just beginning to hint at maturity. The big finish is followed by a modest aftertaste. Guessed to be Martinez 1994. 86/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
