The Churchill's Vintage Port has a comparatively light, aniseed-tinged bouquet with orange blossom that wafts seductively from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannins and very well-judged acidity that lends this young Churchill's great precision. This is a very harmonious Vintage Port with a lovely touch of salted licorice towards the finish. Beautiful. 3,000 cases declared. Tasted May 2013.

This is very floral and fruity with dark cherries and wild berries. Full body, lightly sweet with lots of fruit and a firm tannic backbone. Serious grip or finish to this young Port. This seems to be a remake of the outstanding 1994. 6,000 cases produced of this foot-trodden wine. Try in 2020.

The nose is concentrated and the palate starts with a good depth of rich black fruit. The mid
palate is sweet quite fleshy but behind the sweetness the tannins are firm and the acidity quite
high. The finish has concentration firmness goodish length just a slight lack of elegance.
