Deep red in colour, with a very solid rim; 90% opaque. Fabulous nose, with a wonderful lime juice dominating. Delicious milk chocolate entry, sweet raisins and gentle cocoa tannins. Great concentration and depth of flavour. Huge aftertaste, massive and fabulous finish. This is stunning, fabulous port - just an immense presence. 95/100. Decanted 9 hours
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

F66, Anduze decanting — uncorked 07:00, decanted 10:00. Dark dark red, 70% opaque. Nose of dark plum. Palate had big soft red. Lovely, though lighter than the W66.
