Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate (USA)
Boplaas Cape Vintage Reserve Port 2002: +93 points
"Wow!  This terrific wine has all the components of a top-flight vintage Port except for the price.  Boplaas' 2002 Cape Vintage Reserve Port's boisterous aromatics explode from the glass revealing loads of candied blackberries and black cherries.  Fresh, pure, and complex it is a medium to full-bodied effort with superb elegance, concentration, depth, and length.  Awesomely well-balanced, and with its high alcohol completely integrated into the fruit, this super-impressive wine is densely packed with red fruits, blueberries, cassis liqueur, and dark cherries whose effects seamlessly linger in its sumptuous finish."
