Lifting nose, lots of fruit and floral essence - really attractive. Silky entry, with masses of violets in the concentrated sweet blackcurrant. Big tannins show late on the palate. Great balance of silky fruit and powerful tannins - a very fine port. 94-96. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
