Deep red, opaque. Fresh nose, dominated by sweet violet fruit. Sweet fruit, a touch dry from the tannins. Lots of fruit, but a good balance of fruit, tannin and acidity. Dry aftertaste; plenty of fruit and a chalky dry finish of terrific length. 88/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
