1997 Kopke

Post by AHB » 20:48 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Tasted at the Confraria dinner. Intense, perfumed nose. Dense texture and dense in flavour. Plenty of fruit with tannins hiding behind the fruit, appearing late on the palate. The tannins give structure. Burly, with good life ahead of it. 91/100. 22-Jun-17. Decanted 12 hours.
