very dark red, towards black; quite powerful port that comes accros very young, still a bit closed, plum fruit, very rich; good complexity, good medium finish; great port!

Dark red, 99% opaque. Slightly peppery nose, with fresh blackcurrant; suprisingly youthful and a touch aggressive. Watery texture but full flavoured with big levels of fruit and sharp acidity. Good balance, the tannins almost fully integrated. A touch of caramel on the aftertaste and then a big fruit and blackcurrant-skin finish. Delicious, drinking beautifully and a wine that will hold for some years. 89/100.
