RP 90 points: A striking, individualistic nose of spring flowers, blackberries, blueberries, & lead pencil shavings emerges from this saturated purple-colored 2000. Evolved yet expansive, sweet, & generous, it admirably conceals moderately high tannins under a wealth of fruit & glycerin. The aromatic profile & attack merit a score in the mid-nineties, but the finish is short, thus lowering the overall rating. My instincts suggest there is more to this port than it revealed the days I tasted it. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025?
