11,000 cases. Violet in colour, with an open nose. Massive sweet fruit on entry, then very fierce tannins sieze the palate. A big wine, well structured. A slight bitterness to the finish, with the tannins powerful and persistent throughout the long, peppery finish. 93-95. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
