Mahogany brown; slight heat on the nose, perhaps some toffee. Light bodied, with initially sharp acidity. Oddly lacking in fruit, but having some slight rubber tones. Dried dates and walnuts on the finish, which has a decent length. Not a great port, but acceptable drinking. 80/100 10-Jun-12 Pop 'n' pour
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
