2011 Sandeman vintage port

Post by AHB » 13:58 Mon 13 May 2013

Freshly bottled. Deep red in colour. A touch hollow on the nose with little showing other than some faint soap. Fruit shows briefly on entry before powerful tannins seize the teeth and gums. This is very big on the palate and has a great level of acidity. The finish is huge showing a bit of heat before a very, very long dry blackcurrant finish. A big tannic brute. 91-93. Drunk 23 April 2013 with a 1 hour decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
