Deep red, 99% opaque. Hint of chinese spices on the nose but very restrained. Modest medium- to light-bodied entry with modest levels of red and bramble fruit. Good balance that really impresses on the palate. Chocolate and sweet raspberries on the rather sticky finish. This is a nice effort and is very drinkable. 85/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
