Tasting Notes

James Suckling critic

Vintage Port (book, Suckling, 1990) source
1990 tasting note year

Firm and well made, with a sufficient structure of fruit and tannin for long-term ageing.  Medium to deep ruby, with a light tomato and boysenberry nose, medium- to full-bodied, with medium tannins, spicy, peppery fruit flavours and a lingering finish. 

Clive Coates MW critic

The Vine (magazine) source
1987 tasting note year

Very good colour. Good nose, quite sweet with a lovely underlying flavour of chocolate and roasted almonds. Medium full, good youthful grip. Ripe tannins. Fresh, balanced, stylish. Shows well.
