1966 Kopke Colheita

Post by AHB » 12:06 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Bottled 2015. Deep brick-red colour, 40% opaque and starting to hint at green on the rim. Distinct VA on the nose, rich and honeyed. Smooth in texture and with a rich, fragrant palate that is big, powerful yet focused. The massive levels of acidity keep the balance and focus across the palate. The aftertaste and finish are huge, driven by the fresh acidity. Great port. 95/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
