Deep honeyed red in colour, with an orange / pink rim. Minty nose, lots of applemint and bruised apples. Terrific texture, mild coffee palate and a wonderful lemon-sherbert flavour. Fabulous development on the palate, with a lovely smokey-tobacco complexity and the perfect density. Lovely dry aftertaste and a long finish. Beautiful port - just fantastic. 95/100. 7½ hour decant.
