***90 Points Critics' Score, Aggregated***

The 1980 Smith Woodhouse vintage port has a very deep red, opaque centre and very dark rim. Nose still holds some primary blackcurrant. The initial entry into the mouth is sweet but a wave of tannin comes through, to be replaced in turn by the blackcurrant cordial that is promised on the nose. The aftertaste takes a while to come into focus, but then resolves itself into a dark cherry chocolate that lasts a long time. A surprisingly young wine that will continue to improve and will be better in a decade. Some had this as the wine of the night. 7-8 or 91/100.
*Reviewd by AHB,2007- ThePortForum.com*


The 1980 Smith Woodhouse has a fine floral bouquet with hints of violets and figs, then a palate which is pleasingly mature and harmonious, marrying as it does the finely integrated spirit and the gently appreciating legacy of a ripe and generous fruit profile.
