2011 Sandeman Vau

Post by AHB » 21:51 Sun 14 Jun 2015

Purple, opaque and with no rim. An incredible fragrant nose, full of blueberries, bruised apples and masses of lavender. Sweet entry, a lovely texture and then a building wave of ripe, sweet blackcurrant and blueberry fruit. A huge torrent of tannins lurk behind all this fruit; the combination delivers a fabulous and elegant mouthful. There is a big aftertaste and finish that delivers a tasty combination of black fruit and dark coffee tannins. 91/100. 06-May-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
