1968 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 22:26 Fri 23 May 2014

Copper brown in colour but only 10% opaque. Attractive, sweet fruit on the nose which carries through to the entry onto the palate but with a dose of bitters on the tip of the tongue. Mouthfilling flavours and intensity. Balanced acidity but with the fruit dominating. There is modest fruit on the aftertaste and a big, bitter finish that is rather impressive and very persistent. 86/100. Drunk 23-Apr-14.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
