(From 2011 Vintage) Flora aromas of rockrose and violets of the Franca deliver superb elegance, finesse and harmony. The sizeable contribution from the old, mixed vines show through in the gorgeous layers of liquorice and blackberry fruit. The seamless spicy tannins give grip and authority to this Vintage Port.
(From 2003 Vintage) Good saturated ruby. Raw, brooding nose dominated by crushed dark berries. Then dense, sweet, superripe and powerful, if a bit high in alcohol and unrefined. A big boy, with a strong chocolatey flavor...
Decanter(From 1983 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Excellent, deep colour, rich, powerful and aromatic. Big, sweet, superb balance, length and grip. Drink up to 2025.
