Nose slightly odd - at first full of applemint and freesias but this deteriorates over the course of 3-4 days to become resinous and unattractive. At first big and balanced on the palate but with more time the tannins become very dry and dominating, promising a long life ahead. Most certainly not intended to be an early drinker this port is one of the most tanninc of the 2011 vintage and packs a real punch. 93-95. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
