International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 106

($70) Saturated bright ruby. Primary, backward aromas of cassis, redcurrant, licorice, minerals, bitter chocolate and spices. Penetrating, structured and powerful. Not hugely sweet but boasts superb flavor definition and impressive extract. A very unevolved port that's best today on the expanding finish, which features notes of cassis, violet, dark chocolate and peaty earth and terrific grip and thrust. (Premium Port Wines, San Francisco, CA)

Jancis Robinson Author: Jancis Robinson

Very dark crimson though not as deep as, say, the Cockburn. Rather raw and callow on the nose. Thick and sweet and syrupy. Lots of astringence and rather simple, boiled fruit flavours. But there is richness and a nice dry streak here too. May get there in the end.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 143

An opaque blue/purple color (typical of this vintage's top offerings) is followed by a strikingly provocative aromatic display (flowers, licorice, blackberries, and cassis). This firmly-structured, classic, tightly-knit, restrained port exhibits brilliant purity as well as impressive intensity. While not the most dramatic or flamboyant, it is a beautiful, classically structured port that will age gracefully.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Very grapey, with lots of black licorice and blackberry character. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, exquisite finish. Refined and well-made.

For The Love of Port Author: Roy Hersh

Dark reddish-purple color and full opacity. Grapes from Quinta do Bomfim were harvested in late September. Ripe plum and juicy blackberry fruit with hints of spice and cassis on the richly textured palate. The velvet glove may be missing here but certainly not the iron fist. The tannins take hold on the extremely long finish and they don't let go and yet this VP manages to show an appealing if not decadent mouthfeel. A very well constructed, full-bodied young Dow that will last for many decades. Should be right up there with the 1970 and 1977 ... and might just show them both up someday.
