From magnum. Deep red, very rich appearance; the colour of mature Burgundy. Spicy and vibrant on the nose, cinammon and black cherries. Sweet fruit all over the entry to the palate with lots of gentle black licorice. Dense and full bodied but so smooth. Very rich on the palate. A touch of cherry cough sweets on the aftertaste, a bit of heat then a long, long finish of dense cherry stones. Absolutely delicious. 95/100. Drunk 25-Sep-13. Decanted 5 hours
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

G70, magnum: glorious red, pink at edge, 40% opaque. Taste showed strong white pepper, with red plums behind. Lasts wonderfully, very very long, leaving raspberries for several minutes. Wonderful port. WOTN, by general acclaim.

And, better and better, it came in a handy 150cl quality-control trial size.

Prunes and dates on the nose. Tasted of silky and smooth jam. Long aftertaste. Very good port
