1999 Niepoort Secundum (barrel sample)
Tasted somewhere 2003:
Beautiful dark purple color, moving towards pink around the edges. This port smells of lovely flowery perfume, young berries and green spices. It tastes of hot cherry/plum jam. It isn't all too complex and it's medium bodied with soft tannins. Very pleasant to drink now, but it will be interesting to see how this will develop in 8-10 years. My guess is that it will turn out to be a very delicate, easy drinking port.
