Deep red, opaque. Young nose, showing early maturity with lots of fruit - redcurrants and almonds. Neutral entry, very youthful, very lively and spicy - even quite hot! Fruit takes a lot of work to reveal. Hot aftertaste, hot finish, which slowly fades before leaving a dry finish of bitter blackcurrant skins. Needs much more time. 84/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
