Neal Martin 96 points Wine Advocate, 1983 Port wine
Tasted at Taylor's tawny seminar in London. Pale mahogany core with a tawny rim. The nose has a generous, nutty bouquet with semblances towards a Bual that ebb with time. Very fine definition, the nose opening up with time with a touch of antique furniture shop, honey, juniper berries, dried apricot and sloe. The palate has a peppery entry with touches of soy and Chinese 5-spice, expanding nicely across the mouth but maintaining focus. Its judicious oxidative elements impart potent walnut, smoke and red pepper flavours towards the mellow, understated, sumptuous finish. Wonderful. Tasted October 2010
