Re: 2009 Niepoort cask sample

Cask sample. Lovely sweet blackcurrant on the nose. Dry in the mouth, tannic but with restrained sweet fruit - modest at first but which grows well to great levels. Gentle acidity, good tannins and masses of fruit on the palate. The tannins are beautifully ripe. Dry aftertaste, slightly hot then followed by a very, very long blueberry and pine resin finish with dry cheeks and teeth. Splendid port; a medium term keeper. 90-92 / 100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
