Meeh...good but not great to me. For me, a good port needs more "gas" and less "jam". Which means a tawny port. Now THOSE are great... This was ok. I don't think I would spend the money for true vintage port given this showing. This is a single vineyard, single vintage port. It's about the next bestest thing to a vintage port you can get. Had some bright fruit with licorice. Can't remember much else, except a tawny port goes with a cigar much better. Too cloying. Maybe needs more time...

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
