Really smooth, almost no heat, syrupy fruit - strawberries which have been stewed. Really jammy mouthfeel.
Later, losing a bit of structure, and more syrupy.

Deep rosy-pink, 50% opaque. Gentle nose of spiced cherries, soft but attractive. Fruit on the palate, sweet maraschino cherry with nutmeg giving a lively pepperiness. The pepperiness follows through onto the aftertaste; the sweet fruit lacks a shade of acidity to keep the port in focus and balance. 88
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
