GB67 (AHB). Brown, 30% opaque. Velvet texture. Fruit all gone, leaving a soft mid-weight delicious mature Port.

Medium bronze in colour, 20% opaque. Restrained on the nose with fresh but harsh rose-hips. Soft and gentle entry of mature and ripe fruit with generous leather and nutmeg. Very fragrant palate, perhaps slightly too aggressive. Very spicy and peppery aftertaste that leads to a sticky toffee finish of great volume. Lovely mature port. 89/100. Decanted for four hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
