My #3. Group #2 or #3. Balance with moderate red fruit, neither especially sweet nor tart. Smooth glycerin mouth feel. This is what a well-matured top of the line vintage port should taste like, but it still has life left in it. (93 pts.)

Lovely and warm in the nose. VERY SOFT in the mouth, not very much structure or acid, but great velvety fruit, rich and agreeable. Simple? Perhaps.
