Bottled by Shortridge, Laughton & Co. An unknown port, with a short and unbranded cork. A touch of bottle stink, but then lots of VA, toffee apple and bovril. Sharp and dry on entry; very concentrated, hugely acidic and concentrated building up to a massive palate. Lots of VA also showing on the palate. A huge colheita wine, tasting as though it is very old. 84/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
