Suspects, mostly old but one new, gathered in the obvious place to do the obvious thing. We are creatures of habit.

Bottled by Harvey's. Mid red colour; 50% opaque. Hollow nose, with some lifted tones that come over as slight VA but is still moderately attractive. Medium-bodied on the palate, with plenty of flavours that develop well. Dry, black chocolate tannins over luscious (but one-dimensional) fruit that sits in a slightly watery texture. Tannisn become dry but acidity provides some focus. There is a good dose of acidity on the palate, a good volume finish and a great length. 85/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
