Muted nose, showing some minted fruit. Restrained at first on the palate, but powerful acidity and tannins dominate over the delicate and perfumed fruit. The black chocolate tannins continue to dominate the aftertaste and finish. Rather a blackstrap style of a port that should be long-lived; combining power and balance well. 92-94. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
