20% opacity, brown-red with a yellowish rim. Soft nose, ripe strawberries. Lively entry on the palate, nicely balanced, and soft red fruit. Very nice port.

Mature brick red, 30% opaque. Gentle on the nose, a little harsh rose hip and sweet hawthorn perfume. Delicious mature fruit on the palate, redcurrant syrup; gentle flavours at first then a big dose of harsh acidity bringing sweet fruit and cigar tobacco. Spicy, peppery aftertaste with a long finish of concentrated redcurrant syrup. 90
