2009 Sandeman LBV

Post by AHB » 21:46 Wed 28 May 2014

Bottled unfiltered in 2013. Deep red and concentrated in colour; 95% opaque. Dense and tight on the nose. Luscious texture, deep sweet fruit that almost hides the huge tannins. This is really grippy; huge - almost the point of being brutal - but has the fruit to pull off the trick of being a very good port. 92/100. 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
