2003 Sandeman Vau

Post by AHB » 22:00 Wed 28 May 2014

Ruby red endge, quite clear on the narrow rim. Closed on the nose. An attractive texture and powerful tannins that dominate the fruit. Fierce tannins and acidity dominate the finish. The finish is very long and very chewy. This is not in balance at the moment but has lots of promise for the future. 86/100. 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
