2011 Sandeman LBV

Post by AHB » 21:39 Sun 29 May 2016

Bottled 2015. Reddish colour, opaque. Restrained nose, slightly smelly. Bramble fruit entry, sweet and ripe. Tannins show slowly and are very modest at first but build up nicely. The ripe tannins give a slightly chewy finish and a great length with the finish being the best feature of this port. 88/100. 22-Apr-16
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
