Bottled by Mayor Sworder. Brick red, 20% opaque. Fabulous nose, delicious and inviting with a hint of cocnut and sweet raisin. Sweet and flavoursome, lovely texture; comes with a cedar-wood bite on the palate and a very gentle pepperiness from the tannins. Fabulous concentration on the aftertaste and finish. Wonderful port, really great. 94/100. Decanted 11 hours
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

W63, decanted 08:00. Red-pink, 40% opaque. Palate very very soft, and long, and sweet. Hint of strawberry in that long palate.
