I almost feel guilty posting this, as the opportunity to taste such an extraordinary wine comes so rarely. Deep and rich, with amazing balance for a young Port. Years to go -

Deeply vinous, some chunks of sediment in my glass so I can't fairly grade the tannin or texture. But what I tasted was truly magnificent.

One of the rarest ports in the world. A pleasure to taste this flight. In terms of sheer awesomeness the 63 beat them all, but that 31 was a timepiece.

Without a doubt the greatest port I've ever had. Fresh, lengthy, complex, integrated.

Wow! Definitely one of the most unique ports I have ever had. Softer body with a touch of earth tones, baked cherries and raspberries.
