Niepoort Late Bottled Vintage Port, 2005

At first, a bit volatile, but with time it softened, offering lush berry fruit, a bit of caramel on the nose with some lovely cinnamon and aniseed aromas.  The palate was lush, dark and tannic, with lots of chocolate, honey and brambles galore coming through.  A lovely port that I think needs a few years to settle.  84pts (May 2011)
