2006 Sandeman LBV

Post by jdaw1 » 00:16 Sat 09 Apr 2011

Tasted at The Big Fortified Tasting, a trade fair in London at Glaziers Hall on Wed 06 April 2011 (Review thread, containing links to other tasting notes). This being a large trade-fair event, tasting notes generally brief.

2006 Sandeman LBV. Rough throughout the palate. Not a patch on the 2005 Sandeman LBV.

Bottled 2010. 90% opaque, youthful red colour. Open and attractive on the nose, driven by pure fruit smells. Subdued fruit on the impact and powerful tannins which seem slightly green and astringent. Tannins dominate the palate. The finish is dry, tannin dominated and with modest levels of fruit. A decent LBV. 86/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
