Deep red with a medium rim. Sweet bubble gum smell in the glass, soft and fine. Sweet fruit, ripe and rounded; the gentle tannins that lurk in the background jump to the fore when mixed with air and give this port a great palate presence. Lovely sweet fruit finish. A nice ruby port. 86/100. 04-May-16
