5,000 cases. Intense purple colour almost identical to the Fonseca. Lavender and blueberries on the nose, sweeter and with more floral tones that the Fonseca. Delicious texture on entry, with restrained fruit and unrestrained tannins - unrestrained, fierce tannins! There is a slight woodiness to the tart blueberry fruit. 92-94. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
