1955 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 22:18 Fri 23 May 2014

Medium brick red, 20% opaque. Muted on the nose with some medicinal, rosemary tones. Soft entry with powerful and bitter acidity at the fore. The medicinal flavours make themselves seen on the palate, but always bitter and hot. The acidity also dominates the aftertaste and leads to a bitter finish of good length. Disappointing. 84/100. Drunk 23-Apr-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
