FrL99 (Anthony Habert of Sogrape UK). Floral nose. Palate too young; great grip; dark plum. Good Port.

From Sogrape. Mature red, with a narrow rim and an opaque centre. Very subdued nose with gentle fruit. Balanced and attractive; lovely mature fruit with delightful gentle powdery tannins. Such a wonderful and elegant aftertaste with perfect poise, great length and superb dark chocolate tannins. Really enjoyable, drinking nicely now and with at least a decade ahead of it. 88/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
