Violet colour. A fresh, floral nose, nicely developed. Lush and velvety texture on entry. Chocolate tannins are very firm at first but these then fade back into the fruit to reveal the sweet, rich fruit again. A touch empty on the immediate aftertaste before a long, strong licorice root takes hold. 94-96. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
