Still opaque. Modest on the nose, but still showing lovely ripe fruit. Lovely silky texture, fruit driven and with a ripe intensity before the tannins take firm hold but never dominate. Huge palate. Fruit dominated aftertaste, with the tannins showing chocolate grip but the fruit dominating everything. This port is something special. 94/100
