1982 Sandeman vintage port

Post by AHB » 14:13 Tue 02 Feb 2010

Glowing red colour, pale and transparent but clear and bright. Slightly mushroomy on the nose - a bit worrying, but after a few minutes this developed to be much more of a herbaceous note. Sweet initial impact, followed by dry tannins on the cheeks. Soft cherry juice fruit, although a little simple and straightforward. The aftertaste is sweet and fruity, with a soft and gentle and reasonable length. 88/100. Drunk 1 Feb 2010 on a pop 'n' pour basis.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Mid-translucency glorious red. At D+0 grapes, and twiggy or woody. CSD rightly said ‟full forest”.

I got what I can only describe as "Fall Forest Floor" (F^3) on the nose. A combination of dried leaves, dirt/mud, wood, and a bit of an almost decomposition-al component. Not bad, and certainly not flawed, but really quite curious. Actually not too dissimilar in a way from some 97 right bank claret I've had lately. In the mouth, it gives a very soft, almost floral/perfume component. Quite nice indeed. A different style than the Taylor, but of a similar caliber. 88
