Brown tinge on the rim, touch of stink on the nose. Balanced entry, with brown sugar, raisins, sultanas and some pecan pie. Spirity midpalate. The aftertaste develops a little but never delivers a lot. Slightly disappointing given some of the previous wines. 90/100.

This port had a bad start, being rather simple and boring. But boy did it develop in the glass. It got younger every time I sniffed and tasted it, and gained in complexity accordingly. Probably not the best example of this legendary port, but a very good bottle in the end. 93 points.
