1999 Sandeman Vau

Post by AHB » 21:50 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Dark red in late youth, no purple but not yet any bricking. Modest nose with a little candied violets and icing sugar. Generous fruit on the initial impact. Good mid-palate structure with decent tannins and perfect acidity. Great palate combining balance and power. Soft chewy finish of lovely blackcurrant. Good now and for the next 20 years. 89/100. 06-May-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
