Firm red colour with tones of early maturity. Perfumed nose with lots of violets and black fruit. Smooth and sweet on entry, full of soft fruit with gentle tannins. Very balanced on the palate but rather lightweight. Gentle fruit on the finish. A nice example of the style. 85/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
