Orange-brown in colour, 20% opaque. Oxidised on the nose, slightly maderised. Soft, nutty and tawny on the palate with nice and attractive balancing acidity. Good concentration on the palate. Fabulous, huge aftertaste with superb concentration. A real surprise of a port after the initial smell. 91/100. Decanted 14 hours
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

tawny-like, actually very nice, but not how it should have been, oxidised. Not rated (faulty).
