Produced by Quinta do Noval for Berry Brothers & Rudd. Bottled 2013. Orange-amber colour with an orange rim; 50% opaque. Nosing strongly of ground almonds. Honeyed oranges on the palaye, sweet but with a balancing citrus acidity. Honey sweetened grapefruit on the finish. This is very sweet but comes across as being a little unbalanced. 87/100. Drunk 11-Jul-14
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
