2009 Niepoort Bioma vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:15 Sat 11 May 2013

This was tasted twice at the BFT on 24 April 2013.

A separate bottle from the previous tasting note. Red, 90% opaque. Closed nose. Restrained entry, gentle fruit and round but firm tannins. Air brings out even more tannin. Overall this is round and gentle with a lovely balance. 88/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
