Vivid ruby/garnet colour, with a soft bouquet of ripe concentrated fruit, plums, black cherry and hints of chocolate. On the palate full-bodied, with an iron back-bone of mature tannins and acidity. A long and elegantly dry finish.

Wine AdvocateThis is an extraordinary house that seems to have been particularly successful with its vintage port since 1977.The 1977, still a baby, is fabulously scented, very rich and concentrated, and has a potential longevity of at least another 30-50 years.
