30% opacity, red-brown, orange-yellow rim. Hints of menthol and tobacco. Lovely syrupy mouthfeel, tingling heat mid to late palate. Muted oranges with a long long aftertaste. Very nice indeed, very true to G70 traditions.

Brick red appearance, 50% opaque. Sweet fruit on the nose, a nose which is well developed and attractive. Smooth entry, full of rich and sweet fruit. The palate has a wonderful complexity with faint hints of tannins giving a slight dustiness to the fruit. Delicious on the finish, fruity and full of flavour. A bottle showing well. 93/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
