Mid red, mature in colour, 40% opaque. Delicate and fragrant nose, quite powerful. Concentrated and fruity palate, gentle flavours with a good presence, fine acidity and still a touch of tannin. Powerful acidity on the aftertaste, before a very persistent and concentrated finish of terrific length. Really lovely port. 92/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

RV45. Mature red, 30% opaque. Palate of red-fruited candy, then sweetness. Long. Lovely mature Port.
