2007 Niepoort Pisca vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:07 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Young red colour. Nose quite closed; what there is, is floral. Very sweet in the mouth, showing plenty of grip. Lots of blackcurrant and sour bramble fruit. The finish is dominated by the tannins, but is quite long. Other 2007 ports are better than this. 85-87. Drunk 26 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
