1994 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 22:32 Fri 23 May 2014

Firm red, 90% opaque. Lovely nose of stewed red fruit. Fruit forward entry, with a nice balance. Acid shows strongly on the mid-palate with the tannins barely visible. Balanced palate but I would anticipate the fruit will fade and the acidity will dominate. The fruit and the acidity meld together nicely on the aftertaste with the finish being pleasant and lingering. 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
