Mid-red colour, holding into the rim; 50% opaque. Sweet cranberry nose of mature port. Still some youthful tannins, chalky but soft, with lots of sweer, ripe fruit - with a good few years still ahead of it. Medium bodied, surprisingly dry, with plenty of fruit and some floral notes. Modest aftertaste, which leads to a long finish of sweet raspberry and gentle chocolate. 90/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
