Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Sweet nose of blackcurrants, blackberries, oak, cooked cherries, plums, vanilla, licorice, leather, light chocolates, earth, mocha, pencil lead, light vegetables and black pepper.
Full bodied and bold with high acidity and long legs.
Sweet on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherry pie, dried figs, tobacco, spices, wood, vanilla, cloves, dark coffee, chocolates, alcohol, mocha, caramel, spices and peppercorn.
Long finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This vintage Port is young and so enjoyable already. Well balanced and sweet with lots of acidity to balance the sugars out. Good by itself as a desert.
Big and still showing some alcohol, on the palate, and earth notes on the nose, which will go away with time.

Beautiful jammy port. Paired with 3 kinds of cheddar and complemented beautifully. Later, paired with chocolatey Pots de Creme. Amazing! — 3 months ago
Interesting balance. Fantastic flavor, that classic tawny caramel and nuts. But quite a bit of alcohol on the finish. Trade offs... — 11 days ago

What an amazing Gruner! Tropical from the Marlborough terroir with tiny hints of grapefruit and citrus, but with the smoothness and depth of a traditional Gruner. It’s great! — 7 days ago
Supple, jammy, silky mouthfeel, grapefruit, reminds me of the smokey charcoal of a Vacqueyras and the fruit of a luscious Pinot.
A recommended Rhône from the local shop owner on 23rd street.
A bouquet that brings the memory of clementines.
