2011 Kopke LBV

Post by AHB » 13:28 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Rose red colour with a narrow rim and an opaque centre. Fragrant nose with lots of blackcurrants and a deep earthiness. Green bell peppers and redcurrants on the palate with strong tannins and a good acidity. A surprising amount of fresh fruit on the mid-palate leading to a long berry aftertaste and finish. A great length of redcurrants. Lovely but very youthful; a port which will happily cellar for 10+ years. 88/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
