Mid red colour, mature with some modest bricking. Classic nose of mature port with lots of ripe fruit and a nice freshness. Sweet and balanced entry with a lovely elegance to the sweet fruit. Light bodied but still with some soft tannins helping the acidity to support the structure. A huge burst of cornflowers and hyacinth perfume on the aftertaste giving a wonderful floral fragrance to the finish. 89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994

No, but it was brought by JDAW so he might be able to give us a clue.
