Very herbaceous nose, bringing crushed endives and salad leaves. Time blew off some excess sulphur to reveal beautiful pure fruit on the palate in a satin smooth body. The tannins are huge but superbly ripe to give a massive palate presence. The aftertaste is an incredibly complex explosion of fruit salad and leads to an immense and complex finish. This is a stunning port and one of the absolute stars of the vintage. 97-99. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.

Reproduced with spelling mistake and all to show it was genuine. Nice to know others read what I write! Now all I need is for someone else to try the port and tell me what they think.

Availability is somewhat limited - possibly due to lots of people reading your tasting note
I expect those who have purchased might be saving them at this point though, assuming 2011 will likely be closing down for a good sleep now before hopefully waking bright eyed and fabulous sometime around 2032 onwards...
