1980 Sandeman

Firm red colour, mature in appearance but not losing density; 25% opaque. Dusty fruit on the nose, quite generous and enjoyable. Generous sweet fruit on entry; the mid-palate shows big acidity and surprising tannins mixed in with the mid-palate fruit. Good complexity on this lovely medium-bodied port. A lovely soft finish. This is drinking very nicely. 88/100. 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
