1999 Sandeman Vau

Post by AHB » 00:17 Sun 16 Nov 2014

Drunk at Quinta de Vale d'Agodinho with Oscar and Claudia Quevedo, Luis Sottomayor and Rob Coombes. From an ex-cellars double magnum. Deep red and opaque. Closed on the nose, just showing a little restrained and woody fruit. Soft sweet fruit, candied and slightly cloying. Lots of freshness shows on the second sip when dry tannins coat the lips in a slightly aggressive manner. The whole builds to a big mouthful of lovely fragrant flavours. Dry and tannic aftertaste and then a long finish. More fine port with plenty of time ahead of it for drinking. 90/100. Drunk 23-Sep-14. 10 hours double decanted.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
