Intense purple, restrained nose mixing nettles and brambles. Velvet texture bringing generous fruit with generous tannins that provide very firm support. More fruit comes with a second surge in the mid-palate before the tannins gain control. This is a massively tannic winebut with the fruit to stay in balance. 93-95. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
