1980 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 22:31 Fri 23 May 2014

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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
