2007 Niepoort crusted port

Post by AHB » 22:52 Tue 17 Jul 2012

Bottled 2007; blended principally from 2003, with a little 2005. Deep red, solid centre that is just beginning to lighten on the rim. Limited showing on the nose. Soft, silky texture and firm tannins give a lovely mouth presence with lots of dark cherry fruit. Firm tannins on the aftertaste, then a lovely fruit and chocolate length. 91/100. 14-Jun-12. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
