Deep red and opaque. Restrained nose. Pronounced soft tannins wrapped around sweet purple fruit - more grown up than the Taylor First Estate. Gentle fruit and nutskin aftertaste and a big, chewy and very fine finish. This could be cellared for 2-3 years. 86/100. Drunk 03-Jun-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
