1988 Kopke Colheita

Post by marc j. » 05:15 Tue 14 Jul 2009

Bottled in 2007 - Upon pouring the first thing that stuck me was the color, which was a rich fairly deep red that was somewhat darker that I had anticipated. On the nose I detected copious amounts of brown sugar and walnuts with just a hint of hazlenut in the background. The palate revealed more brown sugar, molasses, pecans and a bit of honey. There was also some spice poking through and although it was somewhat sweet I definitely would not classify it as cloying. The spirit was well integrated, but I thought that this wine was missing a bit of complexity. Overall this wine surpassed my expectations for such a challenging vintage. 89/100
