1966 Niepoort vintage port

Post by AHB » 09:33 Fri 22 Mar 2013

Ni66: very dark red, 60% opaque (albeit in bad lighting). Big mid-sweetness dark plum taste. Lot soy heat mid-palate. Big and very long. top-class port. JDAW, January 2013

Mature red, lovely colour with a slight orange rim; 50% opaque. Spirity on the nose, with a little restrained fruit. Concentrated sweetness on the palate, spicy and lively with the spiciness slowly fading to leave a candied orange or orange crepe suzette. Delicious aftertaste, long concentrated finish of sweet orange reduction. This is weak on the nose but has a lovely palate and finish. Very nice port. 91/100. 10 hour decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
