Traditional LBV, bottled 1998. Deep red in colour, opaque. Perfumed raspberries on the nose, opening beautifully in the glass to become really inviting. So sweet on the palate, full of violets and ripe blackberries. Still quite tight, but with a fabulous balance. Astonishing aftertaste, huge and long lasting with so many phases and nuances - this is a really good port that seems to only just be opening up again. I can't imagine what this will be like in 10 years time. Wow! 93/100. Drunk 31-Jan-13. Pop 'n' Pour.
