85% opacity, deep dark red. Fruit and tannin, lacking some acidity. Very soft and smooth. Spice and tobacco. Nice port, drinking well now and will last some time and develop further I think.

Modest red in colour, 50% opaque. A lovely nose of tight fruit, sweet and attractive. Delicious fruit on entry, which persists beautifully across the palate. Air elivens the fruit, adding a lovely fragrance and revealing the balancing acidity. The tannins are subdued on the palate and provide a gentle chewiness to the aftertaste before delivering a long, long sweet fruit finish. Delicious. 91/100.
