Rich red/brown in colour, clearly mature; 40% opaque. Gentle shortbread biscuit on the nose, surprisingly rich and complex with a wonderful dried cranberry. Rich, sweet flavours perfectly coat the mouth and fill the palate with a dark fruitcake and wonderful complexity. Some spirit spoils the aftertaste but is compensated by a delicious dry fruit finish that is full of nutmeg. Lovely port. 94/100. Drunk 25-Jun-14. Decanted 3 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
