Deep red with a magenta edge, opaque. Wonderful, floral and fragrant nose that is really attractive. Hesitant entry that is slow to develop. Big tannins dominate along with huge and powerful acidity over the top of big levels of fruit that come to dominate the late palate. The fruit drives the aftertaste and leads to a big, fruity finish that has great length. This is really good port. 93/100. Drunk 23-Apr-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
