1 hour in the decanter
Clear red and brown colour.
Suitable aroma that comes off with a fine and spiced scent with sweet dried fruits.
Full bodied with mild tannin, long after taste with everything there is to wish for in complexity with dried fruits.
3 hours in the decanter
Colour remains unchanged.
Oak is now present in the aroma.
After taste lasts longer.
Generally a mature, sweet and good port that should be enjoyed now.
Overall rating 94 / 100
