2011 Niepoort

Post by AHB » 13:38 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Menthol and mint on a nose full of sweet bramble. Lots of acidity dominates the palate at first, but time allows sweet fruit to come through and the tannins to show. Very long finish full of dry tannins. Mid maturing port. 91-93. Tasted over 1-4 as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
