Intense purple with a floral nose. Silky entry, ripe fruit with good concentration. Powerful tannins grip firmly, backed up by modest acidity that gives a good focus. Tannins dominate the aftertaste, but when they let go they allow a lovely long finish to show through. A good effort, but a slight touch of harshness compared to other 2011 ports. 87-89. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
