Modest red colour with a light brick rim, 30% opaque—looking mature and refined. Slight plastic tone to the nose with little fresh fruit and lots of raisins. Very soft, very sweet, very mature lovely fruit—dates and pomegranate laced with mace. There is a big finish dominated by dates that is long and mouthfilling. Complex and delicious, this is great fireside port. 93/100. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
