Mid-red in colour, 50% opaque. Lively raspberries and dark chocolate on the nose. Smooth entry, with a silky texture. Medium bodied, bringing fruit that shows signs of early maturity. Sweet but balanced by gentle acidity and with some soft tannins. Dry aftertaste, long chocolate and hazelnut finish. Lovely port, just entering the early stages of its drinking plateau. Guessed to be Dow 1991. 89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
