2009 Niepoort Bioma

Post by AHB » 22:32 Sat 28 May 2016

Narrow magenta rim. Fresh blueberry fruit and a powerful nose. Fruit forward entry with powerful tannins. Very grippy with great acidity on the palate. A big palate. Huge tannic grip on the aftertaste. This is a port with a massive structure and an immense opulent fruit finish. 93/100. 22-Apr-16.
