First vintage port experience. My god. This is not every day port. So much flavor and it kept changing in the glass. 4 people easily finished the bottle and we could have had another! Really tough to beat and the wine is clearly ready. Not much tannin at present

Tasted On 02/22/2011
Color: Rose with hints of tawny, and a clear white edge; nice legs.
Nose: very little; some alcohol, definite sweetness, and that's about it; no fruit that I could discern.
Taste: very smooth entry, mid palate, and finish; little to no tannins left; likewise, very little fruit left, perhaps, some strawberries or plum; secondary characteristics were slight raisiny; very sweet, smooth finish, maybe a little hot but not much. All in all, it was certainly delicate, but it didn't really come across as nuanced and complex as I was expecting.
