2011 Kopke

Black licorice and blackcurrants on the nose, mixing fuit with spice in an attractive manner. A little subdued on entry with the fruit arriving after the fierce acidity. The finish is built around sour cherry fruit. Probably a long lived port given the levels of apparent dominating fruit acidity. 87-89. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
