2009 Niepoort vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:11 Sat 11 May 2013

Surprisingly red, with little purple; 90% opaque. Luscious fruit on the nose. Generous fruit shows on the palate but without baby fat. Structure dominates over fruit. Good length, but lots of restraint. 87/100. Drunk at the BFT on 24th April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
