1920 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 12:28 Sat 02 May 2015

From an ullaged bottle. Burnished gold colour, 20% opaque. Varnish on the nose, oxidised and with rosemary starting to show, growing larger with more time in the glass. Sweet brown sugar syrup on the entry, coffee on the palate. Good flavours and complexity, with the brown sugar and coffee infused with thyme. A long and distinct finish with the bitterness of burnt sugar. Some heat on the aftertaste, a good length finish that is full of dry and slightly bitter flavours. 83/100. Drunk 15-Apr-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
