Mid-red colour, pink rim. Sweet strawberry nose and some eucalyptus. Lightweight entry, light bodied, delicately flavoured with the fruit growing on the palate. Dry aftertaste and finish, plenty of fruit but very dry. Good length, although a little light. 85/100. 7 hour decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Another port that's best summarised by the word "light". Light pink / orange colour, and light on the nose, which does show some lovely rose aromas. Light fruit on the palate, strawberry and raspberry. Some leather and tobacco. Slightly simple, but the flavours and aromas are all very attractive and it is a lovely drinking port. Well enjoyed.

OBV70, decanted noon. Pink and brown, 20% opaque. Light nose: roses? Strawberry. Taste started dried-out, with heat mid-palate. Some floral notes. Drink up.
