Ptch black and opaque. Much darker than any other port in the Dow offline. Closed on the nose, showing nothing more than some faint blackcurrants. Ripe, sweet fruit on the palate. Full of deep, dark fruit; immensely impressive, with the dark tannins still prominent. Promising much for the future. The development of flavour on the palate and the complexity of this wine is a joy. A cheek drying aftertaste with dark bitter cherries dominating a long, long finish. Still a stunning and huge wine that will be a legend in another couple of generations. 92/100. Drunk 7 September 2010.
