Lovely mid red colour, youthful but not exuberant. Gentle nose of raspberries and crushed dock leaves. Smooth entry, lightly fruity with a nice perfume to the sweet summer berries. The tannins come through on the mid-palate, firm but not overwhelming. Sweet fruit aftertaste with a slightly green edge to the finish, which is of good length. 87/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
