Niepoort Late Bottled Vintage Port, 1996

Half Bottle

A bit passed its best, although that could have been down to storage.  It still showed some lovely fruit aromas and flavours, but it was a bit acidic, and there was a very strong alcohol element coming through.  Secondary flavours of spice were to the fore and it was a bit unbalanced.  Still a port you can drink, but not one that was great.  79pts (May 2011)
