1999 Sandeman Vau

Post by AHB » 23:59 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Bricking red in colour with a wide rim and an opaque centre. A lovely nose of star fruit and beef tomatoes. Balanced entry with mature fruit starting to show some secondary characteristics amidst a lovely redcurrant. Surprisingly pronounced tannins show on the mid-palate. Sweet and tasty on the aftertaste and with a finish of licorice root and sweet raisins. Nice current drinking but no need to rush. 87/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
