2009 Niepoort Bioma vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:13 Sat 11 May 2013

Deep magenta, opaque. Warm bramble fruit on the nose, restrained but ripe and attractive. Restrained fruit at first, but ripe fruit and tannins grow in perfect balance on the mid-palate. Air releases more tannin and more fruit. Big palate. Some heat on the aftertaste, then dry chalky tannins support a long and attractive fruit dominated finish. Excellent flavour profile and terrific balance between all the components. 91/100. Drunk at the BFT on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
