Around £32 from independents (such as WineRaks)
Brownish colour and hints of toffee on the nose. The palate is rich and rounded full of redcurrant fruit backed up by toffee and a delicacy. Comparing it to the Fonseca I did think that the palate was a touch too full and lacks a modicum of delicacy. Still lovely though.

Available for around £30 (Fortnum and Mason list this at £34).
This was superb - in fact still is as I am sipping this while typing. Comparing it to the Delaforce this has a darker hue and is red in tone. More pronounced nose too. Sweeter fruit leading into a broader more complex palate. Plummy with stewed fruits, hints of coffee and currants. Good long length. Bottled in 2005.
