Muted nose, showing only a little red pepper. Ripe fruit on the palate, nicely rounded before a wave of powerful tannins arrive and grab the attention. There is a lovely purity to the fruit with some truffle complexity. The finish is good, fruity and full of dark chocolate. A good port, but lacking some of the depth of the star ports from this vintage. 92-94. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
