89 points Wine Spectator: “Chocolaty and plush, displaying good concentration to the tipe plum, mocha and dark cherry flavors, with paprika accents. Very fruity, with raspberry notes, on the finish. Drink now through 2016.” (12/10) According to the Wine Enthusiast: “One of the big brands in Reserve Ports, Bin 27 is long and well established. So it’s good to report that it is great wine, with sweetness and balancing acidity and fruit. Soft and juicy it is ready to drink, but there are structure and flavors of dried raisins to give it some aging potential.” (3/1/2005) According to Stephen Tanzer: “Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr ’98: “Good medium-deep red. Aromas of red fruits, tar and smoked meat. Fat, lush and sweet; flavors of black cherry and earth. Slightly fiery but persistent back end.”
