2007 Niepoort LBV

Post by AHB » 09:06 Tue 10 May 2011

Lodge sample, to be bottled in 2011. Soft red edge. Baby vintage port nose, with purple grapes and blueberry everywhere. Fruit forward entry, with a soft tannin core; showing pleasant violets and lots of fruit which grows in volume. Good black cherry finish with tickling tannins. A soft and fruity style that is extremely easy to drink. Not rated.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
