2010 Sandeman LBV

Post by AHB » 12:31 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Bottled 2014. Very dark red with a narrow transparent rim. Subdued on the nose, showing only a little fruit. Gentle, sweet blackcurrant fruit over the top of strong and slightly green tannins. The palate is big and impressive; the aftertaste dominated by the fruit and the finish lingering and lovely. This is a great, big LBV full of exuberant fruit and with the structure to mature and develop in the cellar for 2-3 decades. 93/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
