Barbara at Babette's in Crystal Cove, California was kind enough to give me a taste. Just like Barbara, what an elegant port. Dark purple color, soft tannins, taste of fruit but with the right amount of restraint. Drinking very nicely now, and t will only get better with time.
Colour: very dark purple, almost black. Nose: very fine. In the taste hidden fruit, liquorice and cinnamon with a very nice and refined spiciness. Very soft tannins. It was warm, very concentrated – by far the most concentrated wine I’ve ever tasted so far -, with amazing freshness and purity, very precise. A very stylish wine, however a baby still. Like a flower in the bud, but probably with a very good future. For now 93, with potential for some more points, I guess.
