Modest red colour, 90% opaque at the centre. Menthol on the muted nose. Modest and restrained entry, with lots of redcurrant and sweet fruit but very lightbodied. Dry and furry aftertaste, with a soft and gentle raspberry finish. An enjoyable effort. 82/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
