Natalie's Score: 95/100
This is the half bottle size of this sublime port! Wow, this has everything: layers of black fruit, smoke, tar, anise with incredible depth and concentration. Long finish. This will do well in the cellar.

|Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:|
Rich, stewed dark fruit with some leather and smoke on the nose. On the sweet end of dessert wines, but incredibly balanced with acid and tannins. Elegant wine with that would be incredible with chocolate served any which way. I would imagine that this would last decades and only get better in the cellar.

Nov 16, 2014: Opaque black/purple, intense spirity nose with layers of licorice, dark berry fruit, baking spice, floral notes, dark chocolate. Full bodied, sweet, chocolate covered raisins, figs, plum, pepper, licorice... Beautifully balanced and a finish that lasts and lasts. Very young and primal at this point, but everything is in place for an exceptional wine in decades to come. Cellar for at least 10 years.
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:|
This delicious vintage Port from one of the finest declared vintages of late, is chalked full of stewed fruits, dried fruit, incense, and fresh dark berries. The plate offers rich, refreshing dried fruits, raisins, black currant, dark chocolate, and the finish goes on and on and on...Drinking beautifully now and will only continue to evolve over the next 10-20 years. Tasted November 2014. 95 points. Matt Steeves - www.nataliemaclean.com
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Dark and brooding, with smoke tar, mint, stewed black plum, and maple syrup notes, The taste adds figs and has some grippy tannins. The figs hold through the finish. Very nice.
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Juicy dark cherry and cassis, pungent spice, brown sugar, dried fruit, this full bodied wine has long length on the sweet, warming finish.
Pair with chocolate cake, or strongly flavoured cheese.
Drink now, or cellar until 2024 and beyond.
Date tasted: November 2014.
