From a 375ml bottle, decanted (though a coffee filter and standard plastic funnel 4.5 hrs prior to service)
Showing heat consistent with the strength of this vintage and the rather short decanting period. Good purple fruits and floral characteristics, but the heat is coming through strongly
More integrated mouthfeel. Violets, anise, black licorice and dark plums. NOT a 'sweet' wine in its overall approach, but a complete wine, though still VERY young. Puckering finish.
Likely to be a very great port with time (though perhaps never to be one of the top 3 examples of this vintage).
88 points for drinking today, 92+ for potential. Have a handful of other half bottles, which I will revist in 8-10 years.
