Un beau Porto pour célébrer une réunion avec des potes qu`on avait pas vu depuis 40 ans dans certains cas. EN bouche, c`est puissant et massif mais sans excès, cerise au Kirsh et chocolat noir...c`est infiniment long…WOW, du bonbon sophistiqué!
deep rich plums and raisin bordering on syrupy, savory and complex, much better on day 2 and even more on day 3- give it a 10+ hour decant at least- needs it at last for the alcohol to blow off. 92 points- delicious and hard to Put down but didn't blown me away.
Weekend in CT: drank over 2 days. Needs time - best sip was the last sip of the second night. one the first day the alc showed and there was a hint of amarone but by the second night this was true port with ripe black plum dominating, sweet smoky vanilla-bean notes, mid is ripe but a good balance of sweet and savory notes. looooong sweet plum and chocolate finish. delicious and young !

(DOW'S PORT) #1; COLOR-really dark; NOSE-clearly the most youthful; coming through w/ a massive explosive Plum; a cellar dust chalkiness; an Ocean freshness; citrus aspect; hairspray component; TASTE-this has Magic in it; has the potential to be legendary; more youthful & needs more time, this can last for 50 years; this also drinks tremendously now -- it has the pedigree, balance & fruit to combat the alcohol level of Ports; Exceptional; however, this has the clear tannin levels, balance & guts to last for 50-100 years; RP-96; GV-96
