Slightly hazy appearance, mild red in colour. Slightly sour cranberries on the nose. Mild sweet fruit on the palate with some dryness under the fruit providing structure but there is a persistent and unattractive dirtiness. Patience and air releases some fragrance. Mild port, but pleasant enough. 83/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

35% opacity, red brown. Tobacco on the nose. Palate, a bit dirty, thin, some acidity, no backbone. Not great all round.
