2005 Niepoort vintage port

Post by AHB » 17:02 Sat 11 May 2013

Opaque, dark red in colour. Oddly plastic and tanky on the nose. Silky texture, early fruit then ripe chalky tannins. A big palate presence with great development and complexity. Modest aftertaste and length. 89/100. Drunk at the BFT on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
