Deep ruby - purple inky colour. Powerful ripe berry fruit aromas. Excellent balance and complexity. Delightful fresh intensity. Big, full bodied, well structured palate. Intense mixture of rich dark fruits, liquorice and spice. Superb depth and richness. Good long finish.

Wine SpectatorMedium ruby. Beautiful aromas of flowers and fresh plum, with hints of stems. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with gorgeous silky tannins and a long, long finish. This is just starting to come around and offers wonderful flavors. Long life ahead, but ready to try. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Drink now.

Wine EnthusiastDark garnet in color with some bricking apparent, this was "not a particularly good example," according to Fladgate Partnership CEO Adrian Bridge. It was still enjoyable, but seemed to lack midpalate lushness, ending green and firm.
