Opaque, deep red. Subdued nose. Lovely balance on entry, with strong tannins showing a firm grip but there is a lot of fruit under the tannin. Firm tannins grip on the aftertaste before a long, violet dominated finish. This is impressive port. 89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Good deep colour. Very muted on the nose. Grippy tannins.
