The nose has filled out a bit with some nice sweet black fruits showing. The mid palate is rich ripe and sweet, layers of flavour giving complexity and although there are hints of hazel nuts on the back palate the finish is lush and sweet fruited yet has a stylish elegance. 2013-20 Rating: 93 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk (Dec 2013)

Part of the Symington port 'empire'. Founded by Scotsman Andrew James Symington who arrived in Oporto in 1882 and initially joined Graham's.
The Symington family own other big names in the port industry such as Warre & Co, Dow's, and Cockburn's to name but a few, and are the largest vineyard ownership group in the Douro.
Not as intense a crimson as the 1980. Quite a wide colourless rim. Burnt, sweet, almost charred nose. The overwhelming impression is one of slightly simple sweetness. Can’t see any tannins left here – until the very end. Jewel-like – sort of rubies in a glass. Exceptionally rich and on the finish quite delicate in fact.
