Post by AHB » 09:09 Mon 28 Dec 2015

From magnum. Lovely deep colour, a very dark red; 80% opaque. Baked and a touch Madeirised on the nose with a sour edge. Nice texture, a smooth satin. Baked apples on the palate with a powerful dry tannin core. Generous fruit, but the fruit is light and sharp. Warm aftertaste. Surprisingly lightweight and an odd showing. 87/100.

Tasted at the Berry Brothers Port Walk on 26 November 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
