Mid red colour with a narrow transparent rim and just a touch of bricking at the edge. Rather closed on the nose, showing just a little red toffee apple. Soft velvet texture, with hints of fruit but big tannins that dominate on the palate. A flash of fruit on the aftertaste and a very enjoyable pepper and fruit finish. This port shows clear potential but needs more time in the cellar. 91/100. Drunk 14-May-14
