Deep red and opaque. Softly fruity on the nose, very attractive. Fruit driven entry, light but very pleasant. Soft, sweet and ripe fruit and an adept structure. Light on its feet and gorgeous to drink. A very fine ruby port focused on delivering balanced fruit without taxing the mind of the drinker. 88/100. 04-May-16
