    July 29, 2011 - Fantastic, this is ageing very well. It is quite smooth and rounded at this point. Lovely sweet pure fruit with no heat. While this has many more years ahead of it I just can't see it getting much better than now.

    June 3, 2006 - Awesome. Just love it. Given how well this one aged, this is definitely a port I am going to continue to buy

    February 19, 2005 - Boy- this is as good as a vintage port. Deep, sweet fruit and leather tones. Long, long finish No sign of this ageing.
