Jancis Robinson

Dark blackish purple. Rich, soft, black cherries. Very very sweet and powerful and alcoholic, so much so that it is quite difficult to even discern the tannins but they are there. Is this just a bit too brutal and raw? It is extremely young but it does have all the ingredients there. (Drink between 2015-2025)


Symington's Port Tasting Panel

It is clear that the 2000 wines show great power; the colour is immense and the tannins are strong. The wine itself displays complex layers of ripe fruit that promise well for the future. It is clear that 2000 was one of the smallest vintages for many years, but the concentration of the wine is exceptional, a fitting with with which to mark the year. Deep dark ruby colour. Wonderful lifted aromas of “esteva” and roses. Very mature fruit imparts raisin flavours and a thick cassis structure. Layers of ripe fruit promise well for the future.


For the Love of Port

Vibrant dark purple color with violet edge. Ripe plum, cassis and herbal notes. Medium-bodied wine with abundant, soft sweet fruit. A gentle giant displaying raspberry, an interesting peach note and an almond nuance on the very lengthy finish. Smooth texture with relatively tight tannins that support the wealth of peripherals in this finely tuned VP from the Symingtons. Another excellent long term ager here. A very well made Smith Woodhouse that is even better than the 1977 and as good as their 1983 ... maybe better in time. 92 Points

Opulent rich style, balanced by firm hard tannins. Ageing gives these wines an unmatched elegance.
