Bottle 0691. Vibrant and wide pink rim. Herbaceous and fruity on the nose, which is pronounced and well developed. Ripe sweet fruit which persists right across the palate. The tannins appear but at their own slow and leisurely pace, mild and gentle, bringing a delightful lavender with them. Wonderful fruit and cornflowers combine on the very long finish that moves through multiple phases. This is a tasty, sweet and elegant port. 91/100.
