1987 Niepoort

Post by AHB » 00:02 Sun 16 Nov 2014

Drunk at Quinta de Vale d'Agodinho with Oscar and Claudia Quevedo, Luis Sottomayor and Rob Coombes. Mature red/brown in colour, 60% opaque. Green coffee on the slightly odd nose, mixed in with burnt toast. Fruity entry with lots of strawberry but also a dirty element after the initial impression of fruit. The tannins are dry but gentle. The palate is quite simple and is followed by a pleasant spicy aftertaste that is quite big and enjoyable. 85/100. Drunk 23-Sep-14. Decant N/K.
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
