I am really digging this right now. Very youthful, it is tough to guess it is 35 years old. Very fresh acidity and good energy. The sugar appears to have integrated very well. Sweet, yet earthy nose. Liquored cherries, dates (?) and peaches on the palate. Very long and clean finish. To me this delivers a lot of what I would get from a classy port, but with lower alcohol (14.2%) which makes it a winner in my book.
