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