Made from fruit sourced soley from Roeda. Blueberries and pink grapefruit on the fruit lifted nose. Silky entry, light bodied with restrained ripe fruit and large tannins. The balance of the wine on the palate is extremely good and the acidity levels seem to be slightly below those in the Taylor and Fonseca wines. Licorice dominates the aftertaste, which is the biggest aftertaste of the three ports, and is full of espresso, dark chocolate and concentrated sharp blackcurrant. Very different in style from Taylor or Fonseca and very tasty. Personally, I prefer this to the Fonseca. 91-93
