An adoption by EDN from the cellar of THRA (EDN said that THRA had a slightly pained look on his face when he pulled out some other bottles but this was a happy compromise).

Medium cherry colour, very bright. Light varnish in the nose. Light entry, dusty cherries and a bitter cherry / qvetsche finish. Beautifully dry.

Attractive mature red colour with a rose rim; 40% opaque. Delicious dusty cherries on the nose; attractive. A slight green bitterness to the entry but with generous sweet fruit and lots of cherry juice but the greeness does deliver some dry elements to the big palate. A terrific burst of floral complexity on the aftertaste that leads into a lingering finish of delicate flavours. 90/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
