V04 95% opacity. My favourite of the 03-08 flight. Once again it had that silky smoothness, with huge fruits, sweet but not too much, and great balance with a very long finish. A big port with years to go.

Looking to be in early maturity with a wide rim. Faint sweet honeysuckle or esteva on the nose. Clean entry with focused fruit and generous tannins. Good levels of acidity. The tannins give a great peppery tone. The aftertaste is of sweet and simple fruit with a slightly hot edge to the finish. 87/100.
