Opaque and very dark in the glass. Super concentrated nose of plum, almond and strangely enough- lemon peel (only a touch). Currants and raisins pop in as well but in a supporting role. On the palate this is a refreshing style of Port that gives me blackcurrants, espresso and mocha dust. It’s delicious and fruity with a nice yet lithe set of tannins that very gently apply a dryness right on the finish. This is a nice treat. Absolutely pair this with soft, ripe cheese or perhaps a chocolate ganache. 91 points. $40 and 3 stars. Salut….
