Nice blue and black fruit on the nose. Plum. Very fruity. Good balance on the palate with nice fruit. Toasty, smoky plum, blueberry and blackberry. Good tannin/acid balance. Flavors also of ink, tar, leather. Nice. 88 pts. 5/10/13 at winery
Prager makes my favorite ports. Their Royal Escort is a distinctive, semi-sweet port. The RS is 7% (lower than most ports). 20% alcohol. Having lower RS allowed the quality of the grapes (single vineyard Petite Sirah) to come through for me. Red and black cherry aromas. Went well with a dessert of fresh strawberries and mint cookies. Tasted March 2010. The winery suggests drinking within 3-5 years. The 2001 held up well after 8.5 years.
