On the palate this Porto expresses notes of plum, candied lemon, candied orange, crystallized strawberry and small notes of candied tangerine zests associated with slight touches of cherry, dried fruits, caramelization, Zante currant as well as very hints of discreet cocoa / pepper on the finish. Tannins are well-built. Good length and beautiful persistence. There is a touch of vanilla cream on the persistence.
