On Tuesday 18th September 2012 some of the obvious suspects gathered in the Bung Hole, for company and entertainment, and to taste some Ports, including several samples of Sandeman Vau.

Dark red, opaque. Slightly medicinal nose, with ripe but sharp fruit; pleasant. Sour and acidic impact, which dominates over the fruit. The tannins are gentle and only show on the finish, which follows on from a sharp and unpleasant aftertaste. I suspect this is in a closed phase and would have benefited from a longer decant. 83/100. Decanted 3 hours.

very metalic taste, dark red colour, unbalanced and a bit closed. Dry finish. Very disappointing in its current phase or bad bt.
