Deep purple in colour, opaque and very young looking. Lifted and elegant nose, powerful and fragrant, full of sour blackcurrants. Sour fruit on the palate, then huge tannins grab and don't let go. There is masses of sour fruit and a huge acidity. The finish is big; very, very big full of fruit and backed with sour and powerful acidity. This is a massive port with a 30-50 horizon before it reaches its peak. 94-96/100. 06-May-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
