2005 Niepoort

Post by AHB » 21:36 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Deep red, opaque and still with some youthful magenta. Harsh nose with fruit, but it is sour fruit. On the palate this also has sour fruit and big tannins. The palate is great, big and robust. The big presence carries through to the big finish, full of chewy blackcurrant skins and caramelized sugar. 91/100. 06-May-15.
