1997 Sandeman VP

Post by StevieCage » 22:04 Mon 08 Oct 2007

1997 Sandeman VP â€‟ not the Vau. Nose: closed. Palate: well structured, thick, with a backbone of very ripe fruit. Good finish, tannic.
This Port seemed to be almost completely closed to me. Revisit in 5 years.

At first I thought this was just lacking the body to age well, but later I got convinced that it's closed. There's hardly any fruit here, and it only shows tannin. Wait at least 5 years to taste again.
