2000 Niepoort

Soft red on the rim showing some loss of youth. Lovely nose, very attractive with a huge dose of fruit. The sweet, concentrated fruit announces itself on the palate then gives way to a great wave of massive tannins that just doesn't stop flooding onto the senses! Long and lingering finish, dominated by the sweet ripeness. This is just so wonderful, power wrapped in velvet but will be even better in a decade. 94/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
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
