2011 Kopke

Post by AHB » 08:54 Sun 18 Aug 2013

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 Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
