Description and Reviews:
"Bright tawny with orange flecks, there are whacks of dried fruit and sultanas on the nose, with hints of bitter chocolate and Christmas pudding. The palate is sweet but balanced with a lovely acidity. A fascinating multilayered wine, with the oxidization bringing out maple syrup flavours, coupled with leather and cigar box aromas wrapped around rich dried fruit. Complex, captivating and holding up beautifully." Decanter, Fine Wine Encounter 2009.

The 1960 has a light russet core with deep tawny rim. A lovely soft, mulberry infused nose with a touch of sloes and coca that could do with a tad more delineation. The palate is well-balanced with good acidity, soft texture that belies what is an impressive structure for a ’60 port. Supple and complex; notes of tobacco, espresso, fig and caramel that builds and builds in the glass. Certainly one the great success of the vintage, perhaps better than even Taylors.
