Post by AHB » 15:56 Sun 08 Jun 2014

Offered at EUR 7.41 ex-cellars. Bottled 2012. Deep red colour with a medium width transparent rim. Attractive nose of poised fruit. Fruit led impact on the palate that is sweet and delicious, slightly jammy but with gentle tannin support. Delicate jammy finish. Good length. This is very easy drinking - straightforward and delivers well. 83/100. Drunk 03-Jun-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
