1999 Kopke Colheita

Post by AHB » 22:45 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Cask sample bottled in 2009. Mahogany red, orange rim. Typical colheita nose of slightly funky stewed fruit also showing Bovril and rose hips and a touch of heat. Medium body, quite hot and with some rhubarb showing through a lovely stewed fruitiness. The acidity dominates the afteraste, which ends with burnt orange. Not well balanced. 82/100. Drunk 28 June 2009.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
