agreed 100% on the colour; taste wise I found the port very dominated by its alcohol, that was very apparant and left the port for me somehow disjointed. The structure of the port was very good; slight hints of VA.jdaw1 wrote:GC85. Red, 50% opaque. Bitterness, coffee-style bitterness, throughout, sweetness appearing at the end.

60% opaque, a deep rose colour. Atrractive nose, full of fruit and mace. Sweet entry, with restrained fruit that develops attractively. Lovely mouthfeel and a good balance. The aftertaste shows the tannins as a slight dryness on the cheeks, which fades to a soft Christmas cake and a very sweet finish. 87/100.
