This has softened nicely, with waves of warmed fig, currant preserves and blackberry cobbler. Licorice root, bittersweet cocoa, sweet tobacco and menthol notes all chime in too. The finish has a slightly rustic edge, which holds it back a little, but there's solid range and depth for sure.—Blind 2000 Vintage Port retrospective (March 2021). Drink now through 2030.
