May have committed a bit of "infanticide" here. Decanted for 2 hours (and left a little overnight). Very clear light carmel color. Nose of Asian spices, cigar box and something floral I can't place. Delicate body, and even a bit feminine but a truly gorgeous glass of port. Definitely has the ability to remain in top form for many more years in the cellar. Glad to have a couple more left!
Decanted about 3 hours. Soft and sweetly textured with loads of Christmas cake spices, cigar box, and dried fruit. The long similar finish didn't disappoint. A wonderful VP that is fully mature and on a good plateau where it should remain for many more years. 95 Points
Decanted 4 hours. I can't recall having this for about 4-5 years, if not longer. A sweet attractive nose of spices, leather, lavender, and dried cherries. The sweet palate still retains just a hint of fruit over laid with allspice, cigar tobacco, and some eucalyptus. A subtle and long finish caps off this fully mature Vintage Port. While I don't see this getting better from here, well stored bottles are on a nice plateau where they should stay for another 5-10 years before slowly sliding into a more tawny phase. 93 Points
