Brick red, 30% opaque but there is some sediment in the wine. Spicy fruit nose, well developed and pronounced. Sweet and attractive. The entry is sweet and dense, but the familiar astringent acidity dominates the core of the wine. A lovely palate with nice floral fragrance mixed in witht he fruit. The acidity dominates the rather hot aftertaste before the gentle lingering finish takes hold. Pleasant port. 88/100. drunk 23-Apr-14.
