2011 Sandeman Vau

Post by AHB » 23:17 Sun 25 May 2014

6,000 bottles produced. Youthful purple with a medium thick rim. Floral perfume on the nose with lots of green herbaceousness. Fruit forward entry, thick texture, then a wave of generous tannins and big acidity wrapped around the modest fruit. Big tannins dominate the finish, which is huge and chewy. Great length. A fine medium-bodied port from this superb vintage. 91-93/100. Drunk 24-Apr-14 at BFT5.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
