Deep red but not youthful in appearance, 95% opaque at the centre. Fruity nose, elegant and attractive. A balanced palate with plenty of fruit and generous tannins. Lively mid- and late-palates full of fruity and chalky tannins. Gentle aftertaste with a tannin-dried finish with plenty of fruit and a slight woodiness at the end. Good port. 87/100. 08-Feb-16. Decanted 7 hours.
