Med + concentration with a light purple core and a brownish rim. The nose was young with med + intensity and complexity. The fruit was driven by stewed and dried black fruit accompanied by sweet spices, nuts, chocolate, and orange. Tannins were present along with low acid and balanced alcohol. The #port felt young and well concentrated. There was more red fruit along with a floral component on the palate. Great length. #dows #vintageport #portugal #oporto #touriganacional #ctbucklinwine

Not one of the seminal years for vintage port, but still a wonderful treat. Well rounded, deep fruit, not overly sweet. Very, very enjoyable. Opened on November 5, 2017.

Will savor when Baltimore Orioles next win the World Series, or on my deathbed, whichever comes first.
