1912 Sandeman vintage port

Post by Alex Bridgeman » 14:59 Mon 16 Jul 2012

S12: mid-red, 40% opaque, slightly cloudy. Nose closed, with a hint of red cherries. To taste a full texture, heat mid-palate. Very sweet throughout, and sweeter than the Cockburn, but less long. Later it had grown, gaining sweetness and structure. Much much later, and chilled, full, sweet, and fantastic strawberry sweetness. (Note to self: acquire.) JDAW.

Slightly cloudy in appearance, red-amber in colour and with a green / orange rim. Herbs and sage on the nose, with a hint of orange blossom. Soft, sweet and elegant on the palate, a refined and elegant presence. Quite thick in texture and medium bodied. Good intense flavours and a big aftertaste where the acidity makes itself known. Very impressive. 93/100. 14-Jun-12. Pop 'n' pour.
