2007 Niepoort vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:06 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Young and red in colour. Smells of sharp and unripe blackcurrant. Very acidic, aggressive in the mouth - almost painfully so. Takes a long time to fade. Eventually, the fruit comes through. Little tannin shows through. The aftertaste is lacking immediate impact but the finish lasts for a while. Not a great showing. 86-88. Drunk 26 June 2009.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
