Very deep colour, an intense purple. Faintly floral nose. Soft texture on entry, with restrained fruit infused with violets, soft tannins and generous acidity. Patience allws pleasant development and air releases more ripe fruit but this is not a sweet fruit-bomb like some other 2011 ports. The aftertaste and finish is fruit driven and has great persistence. An attractive mid-weight port. 87-89. Snapshot tasting on 24-Apr-13 at the BFT 4.
