2011 Sandeman

Another port with a hint of petrol on the nose, but this one full of minerals and schist mixed in with the sour cherries. Silky texture with a great balance. A touch austere with huge tannins that grab the mouth and don't let go until the end of a cheek punishing finish of unbelievable length that has a slight greeness to it. A very long lived port. 92-94. Tasted over 1-4 days 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
