Sherbet/icing sugar nose. Good start. Unfortunately it did not deliver with a short, insipid palate and finish. I was hoping for more.

Mature, light colour; 10% opaque. Little on the nose, but what shows is attractive. Sweet and nicely constructed entry, a touch of harshness on the early palate with some dry tannins giving structure. Hot aftertaste, leading to a dry but fruity aftertaste. 85/100
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
