An attractive red colour, opaque centre but with a medium transparent rim. Gently fruity nose that is attractive and inviting. Soft round fruit on entry but then a huge wave of tannin and acidity demands attention, but the fruit always remains prominent right through the palate and leads on the finish. Big and very impressive port. 91/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
