Deep purple color that was non-translucent. Strong berry nose and a jammy taste with hints of currant and berry. Medium tannins with a sweetness that lingers. Flavors fills your mouth and stays. Medium to heavy bodied port that was almost chewy in texture. Very good for the price and vintage!

Deep and very rich with raisin and black currant notes. Dessert wine sweetness is offset by medium tannins. Not as good as a nice, aged vintage port but still quite a bit of fun and without the 20 year wait.

Appealing fresh and intense blackcurrant and cherry aromas with hints of eucalyptus and spice. The palate displays wonderfully luscious, rich black fruit flavour supported by firm but supple tannins.

Aromas of blueberry and almond follow through to a full-bodied palate. Medium sweet, round and chewy. Slightly one-dimensional. Drink now.

This is all about power and rich fruit. A great depth of flavor, dark and brooding, but also with great sweetness and richness. This is an outstanding powerful wine which will age.

A fine, elegant bouquet. Intense dark chocolate and rich luscious black berry and cherry fruit aromas. Full, ripe, rounded fat fruit mouthful. Fills the mouth to bursting with juicy black fruit, liquourice and chocolate. A wine with lovely textural quality; velvety, smooth. The finish is full of flavor and wonderfully intense and long.
