JUST COM­ING INTO ITS OWN NOW, IT’S FULL AND LIGHTLY SWEET, WITH LOTS OF RASP­BERRY, WET EARTH AND FLO­RAL CHAR­AC­TER. DRINK OR HOLD. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST MOD­ERN CROFTS. IT SHOWS IM­PRES­SIVE DEPTH OF FRUIT AND RICH­NESS, WITH A FIRM AND SILKY TEX­TURE. DRINK NOW OR HOLD. THE TINY- PRO­DUC­TION NO­VAL NA­CIONAL WAS A PER­FECT VIN­TAGE PORT IN 1994, BUT THE NOR­MAL BOT­TLING IS ALSO OUT­STAND­ING, SHOW­ING WON­DER­FUL SWEET­NESS AS WELL AS DEPTH OF FRUIT AND FLAVOUR. THIS WAS THE PORT OF 2000— IT SHOWS IN­CRED­I­BLE CIT­RUS, OR­ANGE PEEL AND RIPE FRUIT CHAR­AC­TER. IT’S FULL, VERY SWEET AND JUICY. DRINK OR HOLD. THE 2000 SHOWS A LIT­TLE BIT MORE OP­U­LENCE AND SWEET­NESS THAN OTHER VIN­TAGES OF WHAT IS ONE OF THE CLAS­SIC NAMES IN THE GAME. JUST START­ING TO DRINK WELL NOW.
