Natalie's Score: 94/100

A rich and layered port with seductive aromas of blackberry liqueur and cassis. This port in the cellar for decades will glory so it's also a great one to lay down for a child or grandchild born in 2003.

Pam rated this wine as 98/100
Inky black with purple rim. A killer nose of intense grape preserves. Some liquorice and blackberry present on the palate, but grapes and dark cherries dominate … With chocolate in the mid-palate and touches in the finish, a balanced yet strong tannic structure and dry finish ... a very nice, well-balanced Vintage Port that is in for the long haul. What’s not to like? Patience should be rewarded. Score: 94+ Source: Todd Pettinger, fortheloveofport.com
