2000 Niepoort vintage port

Post by AHB » 19:49 Sun 06 Nov 2011

Deep colour, opaque. Subdued on the nose, but showing some blackcurrant. Soft and restrained entry, very slow to show any fruit but big tannins grab the teeth and gums and don't let go. Fruit does come trhough eventually to give a lovely soft presence. Nice balancing acidity is also present. Concentrated black wine gums on the aftertaste and a long, dry-tannin finish on the inside of the mouth. A big and lovely port. 89/100. Drunk 13 October 2011.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
