2016 Sandeman

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

One of Luís Sottomayor’s favourite vintages due to the freshness. Dark red colour. Lovely fresh fruit nose. Great grip n the ripe black cherry fruit, slight green hint to the tannins. Like a mouthful of salted gammon cooked with black cherries. So savoury!  93/100. Tasted 17-Jan-23. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Ports in 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!
