Frim red colour, 80% opaque but with a hint of bricking on the rim. VA dominating the nose, full of sweet lychees. Sweet impact on the tongue, but flavours dominated by the VA; lots of violets and brambles lurk under the VA. Dry cocoa aftertaste that leads to a dry violet finish. Pleasant port. 82/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
