Tasting Notes

James Suckling critic

Wine Spectator (magazine) source
2000 tasting note year

A young Port, with plenty of black pepper and cherry character. Full-to medium-bodied, with lots of sweet fruit and a velvety tannin structure.

Score: 90/100


Decanter (magazine) source
1999 tasting note year

Sweet nose.  Lovely, intense palate, with good balance of fruit and tannins, and great class.

Score: 3 Stars
