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 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994
