2005 Kopke vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:42 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Blackcurrants all over the nose and a strong streak of menthol. Very well balanced entry, some heat shows through the fruit and there is a biting level of acidity. After a long interval the soft tannins show through. This has a lot of youthful complexity. The tannic grip on the aftertaste fades quite quickly. Perhaps a little light in texture. 87/100. Drunk 27 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
