Deep rich red, with a good core and a mature appearance; 50% opaque. Baked fruit on the nose, with a slight touch of stink. Rich, with a slight bitterness on the palate, but with generous fruit over a burnt raisin. Big and rich; with a long finish of cherry and burnt raisin. Very tasty and fine. 89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
