Deep red with an opaque centre. Closed on the nose with just faint hints of black cherries. Smooth entry, rich in depth and full of blackberry fruit. The mid-palate is supported by powerful tannins with the tannins fading on the late palate. A wonderful, warm fruit-led aftertaste with an immense fruit and dark chocolate finish. A fabulous bottle. 94/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
