1970 Kopke Quinta do Sao Luiz vintage port

Post by AHB » 12:31 Tue 26 Mar 2013

KL70: dark red, 40% opaque. Mid+ weight; red cherries. Slight dryness mid-palate. Lovely port. JDAW, January 2013

Kopke. Firm red centre; 40% opaque. A bit of cabbage on the nose, with sharp spirit grabbing the attention. Restrained cherry syrup on entry, lacking a little acidity for balance but the tannins are still present. Sweetness and tannins dominate the aftertaste and finish. 87/100. Decanted 5 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
