Copper red in colour, 30% opaque. Fragrant floral scent, but faint. Nice texture but no fruit; dried fruit and nuts on the palate with a good balancing acidity. Nice focus, lovely fresh aftertaste and a long, fine finish. 89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

RO45. Mature brick red, 30% opaque. Light an pleasant mature Port, with caramel in the palate. For what it would cost, don’t.
