V08 100% opacity. Not as big on the fruits as the 07 or younger ports. More tannins and leathers showing
90 Points

Deep red, medium rim. Fragrant nose that is fruity and very full. Youthful entry that comes across as aggressive; light on fruit at first with powerful and gripping tannins. Fruity finish, long and full of chewy, tannic blackcurrant. 90/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
