S77. Brick red, 60% opaque. Smoke on nose. To taste some heat, strawberry, mid weight. Lovely port.

Mature red, elegant with an edge of brown. Gently perfumed on the nose, with delightful cinnamon and spiced plums. Soft and gentle on entry, with a delicious sweetness of bruised plums and gentle cinnamon. Soft and gentle flavours and structure - very tasty and elegant, making this a lovely port. 92/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
