93 points Wine Spectator: "Very dark and youthful ruby-purple. Very intense aromas of blackberry and black licorice. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with chewy tannins and a rich licorice, blackberry undertone. Still tight. Drinkable now, but it needs a few more years. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. Best after 2010. (2008)"
4-5 stars Michael Broadbent's Pocket Vintage Wine Companion: "Very deep, even a touch of youthful purple; rich, figgy, classic liquorice nose; sweet, soft, very fruity. Lovely wine. Last tasted May 2004. Now-2015. (2007)"
