The saturated blue/purple/black-colored 2000 Vintage Port reveals a distinctive bouquet of graphite, creme de cassis liqueur, licorice, and spice. Sweet tannin, full body, and outstanding concentration provide an impressive entry on the palate. Notions of chocolate make an appearance in the long finish of this sweet, lush, precocious effort. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030.

Deep, opaque garnet/purple colour. A very sweet, black cherry nose with a touch of burnt honey in the background. The palate has a soft, sumptuous entry, velvety smooth, harmonious with a slight fatness to it. Raisin, liquorice on the mid-palate, firm structure, becoming more masculine towards the finish. This is an impressive 2000, what I think of as a “symmetrical” port that has great ageing potential. Tasted February 2007. Drink 2008 - 2030
