Post by AHB » 17:04 Wed 18 Jul 2012

Bottled 1988, traditional LBV. Mature red, with a pink rim. Rich redcurrants on the nose, attractive. Sweet fruit, nice balance with a very faint tannin giving a pleasant dustiness before a fragrant aftertaste. An enjoyable LBV, well made and drinking nicely. 86/100. 12-Jun-12. Decanted 4 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
