On Thursday 19th December 2013 a subset of the obvious suspects gathered at The Bell in Wendens Ambo to taste old, peculiar and unknown bottles.

From a double magnum. Deep intense red; opaque. Nosing of sweet raspberry and crushed nettles. Lovely fruit on the impact, balanced but quite powerful tannins on the palate supporting a lovely fruit-driven port. Delicious and sweet, the ripe fruit is all over the palate. Lovely, supple and still just showing primary fruit characteristics. 88/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
