Good value for vintage Port that is almost 20yrs old

Description: Dark amber to garnet in colour with an intense nose. This wine features a beautiful nose full of dates, figs, barley sugar, coffee beans and peat moss. Unfortunately, the taste falls well short predominantly figs, prunes and barley sugar. Full body with good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: The heat from the 20.5% alcohol overwhelms the taste.

Drink now or in the next 5 years on its own or pair it with dark chocolate.

Tasted: 6 Aug 2014

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 9/10 Total: 17.5+/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5+
