W85, decanted 07:00. Red-purple, 95% opaque. taste mid-weight, some grittiness, and dark grape fruit. Wood on finish.

Just not ready. W85 in magnum needs another decade.

From magnum. Deep red and opaque. Much darker than the Dow 1985. Fresh fruit showing on the nose, showing loads of real fruit. Delicious red fruit on entry, with a fruit dominated palate - slightly light bodied but well poised. Generous tannins are integrating well. A lovely wine, very young and one which would benefit from further aging. 90/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
