1977 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 22:29 Fri 23 May 2014

A pale reddish-gold in colour, 15% opaque. Astringent nose, lots of fruit but the fruit is very sour - rhubarb and green gooseberries. Soft palate entry, modest fruit but powerful acidity and even some gentle tannins on the mid-palate. Medium to light-bodied. Gentle aftertaste but good volume finish of great length. 86/100. Drunk 23-Apr-14.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
