NV Messias 10YO Tawny

Very similar in colour to the Special Reserve shown alongside. Subdued on the nose with a little black licorice and slow to deliver on the palate but patience is rewarded as this develops into an enjoyable and elegant mouthful with a good balance. Closes with a long finish that is livened up with a good dose of cracked white peppercorn. 86/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
